Orange County Collision Sends Two Motorcyclists to Hospital

A multi-vehicle crash that happened in Orange County on Thursday night resulted in several people being transported to a nearby hospital for emergency treatment. Sgt. Kim Montes, spokesperson for the Florida Highway Patrol, released an official statement on behalf of the agency that describes the incident in as much detail as is currently known by the investigating authorities.

The statement says that it was around 8:00 in the evening on April 12th when several vehicles, including three motorcycles, were driving down the eastern lanes of Interstate 4. The precise details of what happened are not known, and Sgt. Montes made sure to emphasize the ongoing nature of the investigation as the police and detectives with the Florida Highway Patrol work to unravel the various facts in the case to come to a general conclusion on what happened and, if applicable, who is to blame.

The three motorcycles and the car collided in some way, and in the resulting fracas two of the motorcyclists were injured enough to require transportation to a nearby hospital. It is believed that the injuries that they sustained were not life threatening, and both of the bikers are presumed to be recovering well.

The driver of the single car involved in the incident did not remain at the scene of the crash after the collision took place. This has prompted the Florida Highway Patrol operating within Orange County to work with other law enforcement agencies to find and apprehend the driver of the vehicle. According to Sgt. Montes, just because the driver of the car fled the scene of the incident does not mean that they are responsible for the crash; however, the fact that they ran away from an accident that resulted in bodily injury does indicate that there are several charges they may find themselves facing regardless of whether or not they deserve the full blame for the incident.

While police with the Florida Highway Patrol conducted the initial investigation, the entire eastbound side of Interstate four around where the accident took place was closed. It is believed that the lanes were reopened several hours later.
