A St. Augustine motorcyclist is dead after getting thrown from his bike following a crash.
The Florida Highway Patrol says 23-year-old Zacharie Gerardus Vanekeris was driving southbound on US 1 at high speed. He was in the right lane and a box truck, driven by 43-year-old Phillip Ross Bailey, was changing lanes in to the right lane.
FHP says Vanekeris then hit the truck and drifted off to the side, and flew off his bike in to the tree line.
First Responders tried to revive Vanekeris on the scene but he was ultimately pronounced dead.
Bailey was not hurt in the crash. FHP says charges are pending further investigation.
