Gainesville man dies after motorcycle strikes roundabout


A 51-year-old Gainesville man died Sunday after his motorcycle struck a roundabout the day before.

The Florida Highway Patrol says Russell Weems III was heading north on SW 75th Street around 12:47 a.m. Saturday when his 2006 Suzuki struck a cement curb, ejecting Weems from the bike. Troopers say Weems was pronounced dead at 8:30 a.m. Sunday at UF Shands Hospital.

A report says Weems was wearing a helmet.
