A Key West man was killed Saturday when the scooter he was riding collided with a pickup, police said.

Ashley Michael Wiggins, 41, was taken to Lower Keys Medical Center where he was pronounced dead after the crash on South Roosevelt Boulevard that happened just before 3 p.m.

Wiggins was riding near the service entrance of the Best Western Key Ambassador Resort Inn, 3755 S. Roosevelt Blvd. when the truck, headed out of town, apparently made a left turn in front of the scooter, police said.

The truck was driven by James E. Wilson, 49, who turned in front of the scooter.

“Key West police are continuing to investigate the crash,” said police spokeswoman Alyson Crean.

She said no charges have been filled pending the outcome of the investigation.

Wiggins was a Key West native, according to his Facebook page, who went to Pebblebrook High School in Mableton, Georgia, and studied at Florida Keys Community College.

This is a developing story.
