SEBASTIAN, Fla. — Sebastian police say a motorcyclist who sped away from officers over the weekend crashed and died.

According to the Sebastian Police Department, an officer spotted 45-year-old Timothy Left speeding on a red motorcycle around 2 a.m. on March 23 in the 1600 block of U.S. 1.

Police said Left eventually lost control and crashed in the area of Barber Street and Nebraska Circle. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers said Left was operating the motorcycle on a suspended license and without a motorcycle endorsement.
