Man dies in motorcycle crash

- Hillsborough County deputies say a Riverview man is dead after a motorcycle crash sometime early Saturday morning.

Deputies tell us 57-year-old Ricky Alan Shortt was riding his 2007 Harley Davidson motorcycle northbound on Boyette Road approaching the roundabout at Mosaic Drive, when he failed to negotiate a curve and hit a curb, flying off the bike.  

His body was found hours later.  He was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

Authorities don't yet know whether Shortt was impaired.  Toxicology results are pending.

The investigation remains underway.
