Motorcyclist killed in Tampa crash

A motorcyclist was killed in a hit and run Tuesday morning on Busch Boulevard near 18th Street.

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Tampa Police Department investigators say a man who was killed when his motorcycle crashed Tuesday morning on Busch Boulevard was not the victim of a hit and run.

The accident happened just after 3 a.m.

Investigators say Jarrett Gretebeck, age 21 of Tampa, was driving a 2012 Kawasaki ZX-10R east on Busch Boulevard when he apparently hit the brakes and lost control of his motorcycle. Gretebeck was wearing a helmet.

Police say it was reported earlier as a possible hit and run, but at this time there is no physical evidence to suggest that the accident was a hit and run involving another vehicle.

Tampa Police detectives continue to investigate. Anyone with any information regarding the accident should call Tampa Police at 813-276-3440.
