Troy Yambura was killed when he was thrown from his motorcycle after it struck the passenger side of a truck driven by Randall Crowe at the intersection of Hillsborough Ave and Orient Rd.  Crowe was reportedly attempting to make a left turn from westbound Hillsborough Ave onto southbound Orient Rd in front of Yambura who was eastbound on Hillsborough Ave.  Florida Statute 316.122, titled “Vehicle turning left,” states that “The driver of a vehicle intending to turn to the left within an intersection or into an alley, private road, or driveway shall yield the right-of-way to any vehicle approaching from the opposite direction, or vehicles lawfully passing on the left of the turning vehicle, which is within the intersection or so close thereto as to constitute an immediate hazard.”
