Florida Highway Patrol troopers say 47-year-old Tracy Jay Tate turned his 2006 Yamaha onto S-R 85 during a red light, crossing into the path of a northbound Nissan Xterra.

Troopers say that's when the driver of the S-U-V struck the right-side of his bike, causing the deadly collision.

Tate was not wearing a helmet.

Neither the driver nor passenger of the Xterra were injured.
