The Florida Highway Patrol continues to investigate a crash that killed a Largo man.

The crash occurred at approximately 3:30 a.m. on Saturday, January 11, 2020 at Ulmerton Road and Coral Way in unincorporated Largo.

According to troopers, 48 year-old Susan Bugala of Clearwater was traveling southbound in a 2006 Chevy SUV and stopped at the stop sign on Coral way at the intersection with Ulmerton Road.

Dwayne Bastress, age 55 of Largo, was operating a 2007 Yamaha motocycle westbound on Ulmerton Road.

Troopers say that Bugala turned right into the path of the motorcycle.

Bastress, who was not wearing a helmet at the time, was transported to Bayfront Health, where he died from his injuries, the following day.

Bugala was cited for a stop sign violation.  Troopers do not believe alcohol was a contributing factor in this crash.
