Beloved Central Florida Chef Killed in Winter Springs Motorcycle Crash
A Central Florida community has been left to deal with the heartbreaking aftermath of a fatal motorcycle accident at the intersection of Hayes Road and State Road 434 in Seminole County on April 29th, 2021, which claimed the life of a local 34-year-old restaurant owner, chef and barbecue pitmaster.
According to the latest collision reports released by the Winter Springs Police Department, it was approximately 11:25 a.m. this past Thursday that local law enforcement received the first batch of 9-1-1 calls regarding a serious auto accident involving a motorcycle in the vicinity of Hayes Road and State Road 434. As officers approached the intersection, they discovered that 34-year-old Charles Cobb, the motorcyclist, had been ejected from his bike and was suffering from severe life-threatening injuries. Winter Springs emergency response teams jumped into action and immediately transported the badly injured biker to a nearby hospital, however, due to the serious nature of his injuries, he passed away shortly after arriving at the medical facility.
This fatal motorcycle crash is currently under investigation by the Winter Springs Police Department. No additional information has been released to the public pertaining to the cause of this tragic collision. It is also unknown if the other motorist involved in the accident was injured or if they will face any legal charges or ramifications stemming from the death of the 34-year-old motorcyclist.
Charles ‘Chuck’ Cobb, who gained popularity and notoriety through his delicious culinary creations, was even featured on a segment of the nationally-televised Live with Kelly and Ryan last summer cooking a Southern-style version of the Canadian dish poutine. He had recently opened his wildly successful barbecue joint Git-N-Messy, which quickly became a hotspot in his hometown. Mr. Cobb is survived by his wife and four children, and a GoFundMe page has been created to assist the family with funeral expenses.
