JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A 31-year-old man on a motorcycle died Tuesday morning when a pickup truck pulled out onto Philips Highway, just north of the interchange with I-295, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers said the pickup, driven by a 64-year-old Jacksonville man, was turning left out of a car dealership onto U.S. 1 just after 7 a.m. and was struck by the motorcycle.

The rider, from New Smyrna Beach, died at the scene.

All southbound lanes of U.S. 1 were blocked from Southside Boulevard to I-295 after the crash. All lanes reopened about three hours later.
