Motorcyclist Frank Trulson a 66 year-old from Naples was taken to Blake Medical Center in Bradenton after crashing into a U-Haul trailer being towed by a pick-up truck on I-75 at North Port.
FHP stated Trulson was heading east on 75 near the Sumter Boulevard exit when he approached a pickup truck towing a U-Haul trailer. Apparently the pick-up truck slowed down and the Trulson did not notice the difference in speed in time to avoid a crash.
Trulson braked hard to stop the collision but lost control of the Harley-Davidson. The bike overturned at speed and slid into the trailer. The force of the impact threw Trulson from the motorcycle and he struck his head on the pavement.
Trulson will be cited for careless driving and not carrying proof of insurance.
