A 53-year-old Port St. Lucie man was killed when he crashed his motorcycle into a tree Thursday night in Jensen Beach.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the motorcyclist, Christopher E. Gross, was riding eastbound at 10:16 p.m. on Jensen Beach Boulevard near NE West End Street.

Gross was entering a roundabout but failed to negotiate a curve to the right, hitting the tree.  The bike continued east and then hit a railroad track.

Gross was pronounced dead at the scene.
