A Motorcycle Ride Through the Hills of Rural East Pasco County Turned Deadly

The Fran Haasch Law Group

Stephen Kopilchak, 60, of Frostproof, lost control of his motorcycle while riding on Blanton Road, east of Trilby Road, shortly after noon. He died before rescue workers could get him to a hospital.

Kopilchak was trailing three other motorcycles, heading west on Blanton Road, when a car ahead of the group slowed to make a right turn into a private driveway, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The other three motorcycles took evasive action to avoid the car, but Kopilchak lost control of his bike while trying to avoid them.

Troopers are still investigating the crash, according to the FHP.
