Deputies investigate fatal crash involving a motorcyclist in Indian Shores

Crews from multiple agencies were dispatched to reports of a crash involving a motorcyclist. The crash occurred at approximately 4:35 p.m. on Thursday, November 24, 2022 on the west side of the Park Boulevard Bridge.

According to investigators, 45 year-old Kevin Meade was traveling westbound at a high rate of speed on the Park Boulevard Bridge as he approached Gulf Boulevard. Meade failed to maintain control of his 2004 Harley Davidson as he was approaching a left curve on Gulf Boulevard when his motorcycle collided with the guard rail.

Meade was ejected and his motorcycle continued westbound in an upright position until it came to final stop against the City of Indian Shores welcome sign.

Meade was pronounced deceased at the scene.

According to investigators, speed and impairment appear to be factors in the crash.

Next of kin has been notified.

The investigation continues.
