    Investigators with the Florida Highway Patrol arrived on scene just after 1 am Sunday.

    TAMPA, FL (WFLA) - A 24-year-old Bay area man died early Sunday from injuries sustained in a one-vehicle crash on Interstate 275 in Tampa.

    Ian Andrew Harris of Tampa was pronounced dead at the scene just after 1 am.

    According to a Florida Highway Patrol report Harris was traveling north on his 2006 Yamaha Motorcycle when he failed to negotiate a curve just south of the Interstate 4 interchange. The crossed all northbound lanes of the roadway before colliding with a barrier wall on the right shoulder of the roadway.

    The motorcycle caught fire and Harris was ejected over the wall and onto the street below.

    It is not yet known if alcohol played a factor in the crash. The report states the driver was traveling at a high rate of speed when he lost control of the motorcycle.

    Tampa Police assisted FHP with traffic control issues as two lanes were closed for approximately two hours for the investigation.

    “I guess it's because we all want to believe that what we do is very important, that people hang on to our every word, that they care what we think. The truth is, you should consider yourself lucky if you even occasionally get to make someone - anyone - feel a little better. After that, it's all about the people that you've let into your life.”— J.D.
