Fatal Motorcycle Accident Due to Wet Pavement in Seminole County

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on May 21, 2020

During the middle of May, two individuals died after being involved in a motorcycle crash that took place within a stretch of Interstate 4 located within Seminole County. The current information available comes from reports issued by the Florida Highway Patrol and includes many of the facts around the case, however it is important to remember that the accident remains under investigation, so any current details are subject to change or be modified as future updates are issued.

Currently, the belief is that the incident began sometime before 8:50 on the night of Sunday, May 17th. At this time, a 54-year-old individual was riding a motorcycle down the western lanes of Interstate 4, close to mile marker 101. Behind the man on the motorcycle was a 53-year-old woman. The relationship between the two individuals remains unconfirmed by the reports from the Florida Highway Patrol.

As they were riding down I-4, something happened to cause the 54-year-old driver of the motorcycle to lose control. Current speculation is that the road, which was wet at the time, caused the tires on the bike to lose their grip, sending the bike into a spin and resulting in the vehicle flipping over. At this time, both of the people riding the motorcycle were violently thrown from the seat.

When the bike finally stopped moving, it was lying in the median of the roadway, safe from the fast-moving traffic traveling down I-4. Unfortunately, both the man and the woman riding the bike landed within the western travel lanes. It is not clear if either individual was alive or conscious after the crash, but shortly after the initial incident both of them were struck by passing cars.

Emergency response teams hastily responded to the reports of an accident and were soon on hand to try and aid in any way possible the badly injured individuals involved. Despite the best efforts of the emergency medical teams, there was nothing they could do for either of the bikers, and both were declared dead at the scene.

All of the drivers in the cars involved stopped their vehicles and cooperated with the initial investigation. No one within the two cars suffered any injuries in the incident.

Members of the FHP continue to investigate the fatal collision.
