On August 3, 2013, Justin Johnson was killed when his motorcycle crashed into the side of a truck driven by Robert Sterner on Bay Pines Blvd.   Johnson was headed eastbound when Sterner attempted to make a left turn from westbound Bay Pines Blvd into the War Veterans Memorial Park.  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 . . . which is within the intersection or so close thereto as to constitute an immediate hazard.”
