The accident took place last evening in a two-vehicle Levy County crash. A 52-year-old motorcyclist was killed as a result.
The rider was identified as 52-year-old Paul Alan Cuipenski of Belchertown, Massachusetts. He was driving his 2003 Harley Davidson motorcycle around 5:07 p.m. at the time of the incident. A homicide investigator identified him at the scene.
At the same time, 44-year-old Joseph Pasco Testa Jr. was driving his Chevy Tahoe. The motorcycle was riding eastbound on Northwest 60th Street while the Tahoe was driving southbound approaching the same street.
