    Shannon Bollinger, 29, was killed on State Road 200 near Gressman Dairy Road around 1:10 a.m.

    According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Bollinger was on a motorcycle being driven by her husband, Curtis, when he lost control of the vehicle.

    Troopers said Bollinger landed in the middle of the road and was run over by a vehicle shortly after. 

    Family members said Bollinger was a loving and dedicated mother.

    They said she enjoyed volunteering and was involved with her children's sports activities.
