TREASURE ISLAND, Fla. — It took at least an hour before the body of a 27-year-old man was found following a crash.

It happened around 11:15 p.m. Saturday near 10133 Gulf Boulevard, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office. 

A person heard the crash at about that time, but it wasn't until about 12:45 a.m. Sunday when people on the sidewalk came across the body of Nolan Webb, deputies say.

An investigation found Webb had been riding a rented motor scooter on northbound Gulf Boulevard when he couldn't turn and crashed into a bush, metal pipe and cement retaining wall.

Webb and the scooter were hidden by a large bush before being found.

Deputies say he was not wearing a helmet, and it's not yet known whether speed or alcohol were factors that led up to the crash.

An investigation is ongoing.
