Motorcyclist Dies After Crashing into Parked Car in Ormond Beach

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on May 26, 2020

Officers with the Ormond Beach Police Department are among those investigating a fatal accident involving a motorcycle that took place within the city on the afternoon of Saturday, May 23rd. The reports that we currently possess come from this department and indicate that the accident involved only two vehicles. One of these vehicles was the above-mentioned motorcycle. The second was a parked car that was sitting in the lot of the Piranha Grille, a popular restaurant for tourists located within the area.

While much of the information relating to the incident remains under investigation, we do know that it was sometime around 4:00 in the afternoon that the motorcyclist was traveling down the northern lanes of North U.S. Highway 1. It is not known if the cyclist displayed any signs of disorientation or confusion before the incident, and it is also not known if they were perhaps distracted by something along the roadway shortly before the crash itself. What we do know is that it was as the motorcyclist was nearing 241 North U.S. Highway 1 that something happened to cause them to lose control of their vehicle.

As a result, the motorcycle departed from the roadway and began driving through the parking lot of the Piranha Grille. In the parking lot at this time were several cars. It is not known if the restaurant was open or if it remained closed as a result of COVID-19, but it is clear that vehicles were parked in the lot regardless. The motorcycle sped towards one of these cars and, before the motorcyclist could change course, struck the motionless vehicle. The force of this collision caused the motorcyclist to be ejected from their seat and thrown across the parking lot.

It is not known if the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, an important piece of information in cases such as this one. What we do know is that the accident caused the biker to suffer from severe injuries, and when the paramedics and EMTs reached the scene there was nothing they could do for the injured individual. The biker was declared dead at the scene of the incident.

The report did not indicate if anyone was within the parked car at the time of the crash, but it is not believed that any additional injuries resulted from the crash.
