A Plant City man died Tuesday night after his motorcycle, which had been reported stolen, crashed into a car that turned in front of him.

Deputies say Tommy Jerkins, 50, was traveling northbound on Coronet Road in Plant City around 7:30 p.m. when he struck 32-year-old Jessica Alexander of Lakeland, who was southbound in a 2006 Saturn Ion and turning left onto Cason Road.

Jerkins’ motorcycle struck the front of Alexander’s SUV, causing him to land in a ditch about 130 feet away, deputies say.

Jerkins died at the scene, deputies say.

Alcohol was not a factor in the crash, deputies say.

According to deputies, the motorcycle had been reported stolen on Feb, 15 from the Dover area and had not been recovered.
