The Major Accident Investigation Team from the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office investigated the crash

Through the investigation, deputies discovered Webb was riding a rented gas-powered motor scooter northbound on Gulf Boulevard.

He failed to negotiate a curve and left the roadway striking a large bush, a metal water utility pipe and a cement retaining wall.

Deputies learned a citizen heard the crash at approximately 11:15 p.m. on Saturday night but it was not discovered until 12:45 a.m. by pedestrians on the sidewalk.

Nolan and the scooter were concealed from view by a large bush.

Investigators say Webb was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash and speed and alcohol are unknown factors at this time.

The investigation continues.
