Soon after 10:30 on Wednesday night, Orlando police were called to the intersection of East Landstreet Road and Boggy Creek Road south of State Road 528. What they found there was a mangled motorcycle that had crashed into a semi-truck. The accident, which occurred along East Landstreet’s 2400 block, close to Orlando’s International Airport, was particularly gruesome, and the driver of the motorcycle was unable to be identified along race or age boundaries.
As of right now, the Orlando police department and their spokesperson, Lt. Robert Terrell, have not released the names of any of the individuals involved, and they have as yet not identified the driver of the motorcycle. It is not reported whether or not the motorcyclist was under any sort of chemical influence during the time of the crash, and it is also unclear as to whether or not the motorcyclist or the driver of the semi-truck are responsible for the accident.
During the initial investigation, Orlando Police kept East Landstreet closed, all the way from Atlantic Avenue to Boggy Creek Road. During this time, a UPS warehouse was blocked, making it impossible for UPS trucks to enter the 2425 East Landstreet Road location. However, police removed all roadblocks by 5:30 a.m., which allowed the trucks to enter the facility.
Accidents involving motorcycles are not uncommon, especially in Florida. Out beautiful weather makes our highways and roads prime biking locations, and this means that bikers, both local and vacationing, are continually moving alongside of us. Most of us can probably name several of them off the tops of our heads. When an accident occurs involving a motorcycle, it is most often the driver of the bike that suffers the greatest injury, and an accident that might result in a few bruised heads of car drivers could easily prove intensely damaging or fatal to a biker.
In instances such as this, it becomes difficult — almost impossible — to know the right path forward or how to ensure that the new composition of our lives isn’t anathema to life itself. Unfortunately, financial difficulties often compose the most immediately compelling issue.
