Young Man Dies in Motorcycle Crash Near UCF

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on December 3, 2017

A crash that took place between a motorcycle and a fire hydrant in Orlando on Saturday night is currently being investigated by the Florida Highway Patrol. The accident, which was reported as occurring close to the University of Central Florida, involved Binger, an 18-year-old motorcyclist from Orlando. Initial reports from the scene indicated that Binger did not survive the crash, although it is not believed than anyone else was involved or injured.

It was shortly after 11:00 at night when people walking by or standing near the intersection of University Boulevard and Suntree Boulevard heard squealing tires followed by a loud crash. Emergency teams were quickly called to the scene, and when they arrived they found Binger and his motorcycle. Witness reports suggest that Binger was headed west on University Boulevard when, for reasons that are unclear, he lost control of the motorcycle.

Only a few moments passed, but in this time the bike veered off of the road, collided with a tree nearby, and then ended its path by crashing into a fire hydrant placed near the street. Binger was violently thrown from the motorcycle during these events. Although he was wearing his helmet, the force of the impact between his body and the hard ground rendered such safety measures useless, and when the emergency response teams arrived there was nothing they could do for the badly injured young man. The Florida Highway Patrol’s report indicated that paramedics declared Binger dead shortly after they arrived at the scene of the incident.

It is not believed that any other vehicles were involved in the crash, nor is it believed that anyone other than Binger was injured as a result of the incident. An investigation into the reasons behind the young man’s loss of control over his vehicle is underway with the normal lines of inquiry (including testing for illegal or misused substances, problems with the road, and issues with the motorcycle itself) being pursued.

As the Florida Highway Patrol uncover additional pieces of information relating to Binger’s death they will release their findings in future reports.
