Tampa motorcyclist dies after striking light pole

A Tampa man was killed early this morning when he drove his motorcycle off the roadway and struck a light pole.

According to deputies, 19-year-old Max Austin Maza was riding about 50 mph eastbound on Busch Boulevard, away from the light at Linebaugh Avenue, around 12:30 a.m. when he looked back to see if other motorcyclists with whom he was interacting at the light were following.

Maza drove off the roadway, deputies say, and struck a light pole.

Maza, who deputies say was wearing a helmet but did not have a driver’s license, was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital, where he died about two hours later.
