Ocala, Florida — A motorcycle rider was killed in a crash Thursday morning when a minivan turned in front of the motorcycle at Northeast 35th Street and Northeast 33rd Avenue.

A 2005 Pontiac Montana minivan, driven by Jennifer King, 35, was traveling west on Northeast 35th street, approaching the intersection of Northeast 33rd Avenue.

According to reports, a 2001 Kawasaki motorcycle, driven by Anthony Hardy, 31, was traveling east on Northeast 35th Street, also approaching Northeast 33rd Avenue when the minivan turned left onto Northeast 33rd Avenue.

The King violated the right of way of Hardy, which caused his Kawasaki to slam into the right side of the minivan.

Hardy, who was on his way to work, was pronounced dead at the scene.

FHP said Charges for King are pending as the investigation is ongoing.
