One Motorcyclist Killed, Passenger Badly Injured in Orlando Crash with Car

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on January 12, 2021

A motorcycle accident within the city of Orlando on Monday, January 11th, is believed to have caused the death of at least one individual and the serious injury of another. An investigation into the incident by members of the Orlando Police Department remains ongoing, but they have compiled enough information from the preliminary examination of the scene to issue several statements on the crash and its aftermath.

What we know from these reports is that it was sometime around 11:50 at night, just before Tuesday, when a car and a motorcycle were traveling down State Road 408 in Orlando. While the number of occupants in the car remains unknown, the reports did indicate that there were two people aboard the motorcycle at the time. Both of the vehicles were believed to have been traveling along the eastern lanes of State Road 408 when something happened to cause them to collide.

The details of the crash remain under investigation, but we do know that the accident took place close to where State Road 408 intersects with Conway Road. The force of the crash was severe enough to cause both people riding the motorcycle to be violently thrown from their seat. When the emergency response crews arrived at the area, there was nothing they could do for one of the people who had been riding the motorcycle. This person was declared dead at the scene of the crash. The second person aboard the motorcycle at the time of the collision with the car was badly injured, but alive. EMTs were able to transport this person via ambulance to a nearby hospital, where they are expected to survive their severe injuries.

As is often the case in collisions involving cars and motorcycles, no one inside of the car was reportedly injured in the collision.

While the preliminary investigation was underway, officers with Orlando Police Department closed off the eastern lanes of State Road 408 throughout the area for several hours.

At the time of this writing, no charges are currently pending against anyone involved in the crash. During the ongoing investigation, it is possible that this will change.
