Troopers say 55-year-old Tony Lewis Mead of Homosassa, who was riding a 2010 Harley-Davidson, was pronounced dead at the scene.
All four injured were taken to UF Health. Two were taken by helicopter.
The driver of the Kia, 28-year-old Jessalyn Krewson of Gainesville, was taken to the hospital in serious condition.
