Motorcyclist Dies in Ehrlich Road Crash

The accident took place in the early morning hours Feb. 24.

A 27-year-old Tampa man is dead following an accident this morning, Feb. 24, on Ehrlich Road just west of Hutchison Road.

Javier Mercado-Cebollero, 27, of 14101 Farmington Blvd. was traveling westbound about 3:23 a.m. in the outside lane of Ehrlich Road when a van driven by Elias Tenorio, 45, pulled out from a private driveway, attempting to make a left-hand turn. The van traveled into the path of the motorcycle, a Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office media release states.

Mercado-Cebollero’s 2005 Suzuki GXR struck the driver’s side of Tenorio’s van.

Mercado-Cebollero died at the scene, the release said.

It is unclear if Tenorio, also of Tampa, was injured in the crash.

The accident remains under investigation.
