Investigators say as Valois approached 95th Street, he merged into the left turn lane in front of 9565 Bay Pines Boulevard. Valois then struck the median separating the turn lane from the left turn lane for 95th Street. The impact caused Valois to lose control of his motorcycle and was subsequently ejected.

Alcohol, speed, and impairment do not appear to be a factors in this crash.
