BUNNELL, Fla. – A 59-year-old motorcyclist was killed in a crash in Flagler County Tuesday, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

It happened at 4:10 p.m. and shut down all northbound lanes of U.S. 1 at South Old Dixie Highway for several hours.

Thomas Dolan was riding his 2015 Harley-Davidson motorcycle on U.S. 1 in the inside lane of travel when a 63-year-old woman who was driving her 2008 Kia Rondo exited from the parking lot of White Eagle Lounge, troopers said.

According to FHP, the woman crossed all northbound lanes to turn into the median, failing to yield to the man and his motorcycle. The front of the motorcycle collided with the back of the woman's Kia, causing the man to be ejected from the motorcycle.

Dolan was pronounced dead at the scene. Troopers said he was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

Charges are pending as the crash remains under investigation.
