For two decades now, the Venice Fire Department and the Sarasota County Fire Department have shared responsibility in this area, but starting October of 2020, Sarasota County is stepping aside, and the Venice Fire Department will take all EMS calls.
The accident happened around 10:30 a.m. on the 5800 block of Gulf Mexico Drive. The Sarasota Police Department is currently conducting an investigation because the Long Boat Key Police Department do not have traffic homicide investigators.
Deputies investigated this as a road rage incident and determined the fatal shooting was a justifiable act of self-defense. Deputies say evidence collected at the scene indicates the shooter was a victim of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon prior to the shooting.
Troopers say the motorcyclist, 54-year-old Kenneth S. Bauer of Palmetto, was traveling north on U.S. 301, when a Dodge pickup truck driven by 47-year-old Jose Colon Vega of Palmetto turned left to go south on 301, at the intersection with CR 675.
The crash happened around 6am. Troopers say a driver was traveling west in the eastbound lanes of State Road 70 in a 2008 Honda CRV and struck a 2004 Mack garbage truck driven by a 48-year-old man from Arcadia.
As people arrived at the target home in southern Sarasota County last week, detectives were waiting to see if they were licensed, registered, and if they had the insurance coverage required to perform the work.
