BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) — A man is dead after he crashed his motorcycle into a cow in the Tampa Bay area.

The Florida Highway Patrol says 69-year-old Maurice Anthony Fugere of Cottage Grove, Minn., was riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle Friday night on U.S. Highway 41 when he struck a cow in the road.

Authorities say the impact sent the man flying. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
