Prominent Lake County Man Involved in Fatal Motorcycle Accident

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on November 10, 2009

A prominent and very well known Lake County attorney is under investigation for his involvement in a fatal motorcycle accident near Mount Dora. The lawyer’s company won approval for a huge development called the Hills of Minneola in 2008. The attorney is suspected of striking and killing a Mount Dora man while making a left turn into the path of the motorcycle the man was riding. Officials with the Florida Highway Patrol said that the 61-year-old victim was riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle around 8:50 p.m. when the motorcycle accident occurred east of Mount Dora at the intersection of Majestic Oaks Drive and Wolf Branch Road. The collision pushed the victim’s motorcycle onto Majestic Oaks Drive.

The victim was taken to Florida Hospital where he died from his injuries. Florida Highway Patrol spokesperson Kim Montes said that no charges had been filed in connection with the motorcycle accident at that time, but state troopers had drawn blood from the lawyer. It’s important to note that in order to draw blood from the attorney, police must first establish probable cause that the suspect was operating his vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

She said that it could be as long as eight weeks before the accident investigators receive the results of blood tests performed on the attorney. Accident investigators said that the attorney was not injured in the motorcycle accident. The lawyer under investigation is a very prominent and well-known businessman and attorney in the area and president of Family Dynamics, Inc. Family Dynamics is the development company in the process of building the Hills of Minneola project—a 4,000-home development located near a turnpike exchange in Lake County.
