Clearwater, Florida -- A Largo man was killed early Wednesday morning after police say a woman made an illegal U-turn and pulled out in front of him.

Clearwater officers say around 2 a.m. Virginia Graham, 60, was heading west on SR 60 when she failed to yield the right-of-way and made an illegal U-turn just west of Highland Avenue on SR 60. When she made the U-turn she pulled in front of Torin Quiles' motorcycle who was heading east on Court Street.

Quiles, 22, hit the back of Graham's car and sustained life threatening injuries due to the impact. He was pronounced dead while enroute to Morton Plant Hospital.

Graham's injuries are not known at this time or if any charges have been filed.

The road was reopened around 7 a.m.
