ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – A motorcyclist was killed in a crash late Saturday in Orange County, and charges are pending against the 23-year-old Sanford man who turned in front of him, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

James Lorraine, 28, of Orlando, died at the scene of the crash, which was reported around 11:05 p.m. on State Road 50 at State Road 417, the FHP said.
