Another Motorcyclist Dead In Crash

NAPLES, FL -- Another motorcyclist died this week, this time in Collier County after a 2002 Ford Mustang made an improper turn into the bike's path at 10:24 p.m. Saturday night.

Tammy Lehua Headrick, 29 of Naples was northbound on Collier Blvd., in the left lane, approaching the intersection of Golden Gate Parkway. 

The motorcycle driven by Dimas K. Maldonado, 39 was southbound on Collier Blvd in the left turn lane approaching the intersection of Golden Gate Parkway as Headrick executed a left turn on a green traffic signal (not a green turn arrow) and traveled directly into the path of the motorcycle.

Maldonado was pronounced deceased on scene. A blood alcohol test is pending on Maldonado. Headrich was charged with making an improper left turn in front of approaching traffic.
