Motorcyclist Dies after T-Boning Pickup in Volusia County

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on August 12, 2018

A motorcyclist driving through Volusia County collided with a truck on Friday, August 3rd, as they were driving down State Road 415. A report from the Florida Highway Patrol indicates that the incident happened shortly before noon, around 11:30 in the morning, and that the truck involved was a Ford F250.

The person on the motorcycle was headed down the southern lanes of State Road 415 when they encountered a small line of traffic that they wished to bypass. According to the report, the motorcyclist then left their lane and began driving down the northbound lanes as they passed the slower cars. It was not clear if the area where the motorcyclist performed this maneuver was marked as a zone where vehicles could pass one another.

At the same time as the motorcyclist was doing this, the driver of the Ford F250 was preparing to make a left turn out of the southern lanes. It is believed that the intention of the driver was to cross the northern lanes, possibly to enter a driveway or a parking lot.

The motorcycle reached the area where the Ford F250 was making the turn at the moment when the driver began to initiate this turn. As a result, the motorcycle collided with the left side of the truck. It is not clear if the driver of the truck had checked their mirrors before making the turn of if they were simply watching the oncoming traffic for signs of a break where they could make their turn.

The motorcyclist, a Sanford resident, flew off of their vehicle and sustained severe injuries. Emergency medical teams were called in by an unknown individual, and the motorcyclist was taken from the scene of the incident to Central Florida Regional Hospital. He died sometime after gaining admittance to the hospital.

The 60-year-old driver of the Ford F250 did not suffer from any injuries in the collision, and it is believed that he remained at the scene of the crash throughout the entirety of the police’s initial investigation. The crash remains under investigation and no charges have yet been filed.
