Orlando Motorcyclist Killed After Bike Stunt Mishap in Brevard County
According to multiple reports from numerous Florida media outlets, a 31-year-old man from Orlando was tragically killed on April 21st, 2021, after he fell off of his motorcycle while attempting to perform a dangerous stunt along the northbound lanes of Interstate 95 close to the Port St. John Parkway exit ramp in Brevard County.
It was approximately 3 a.m. this past Wednesday morning when Brevard County authorities and troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol were dispatched to the scene of a deadly motorcycle accident within the northern lanes of I-95 near mile marker 208 and the Port St. John Parkway exit ramp. Preliminary crash details retrieved from witnesses who were in the vicinity at the time of the accident indicate that a 31-year-old Orlando resident was driving his 2015 Honda motorcycle along the busy and highly-trafficked interstate when, for reasons that are currently unclear, he stood up on the seat of his bike with his arms completely outstretched and his grip removed from the motorcycle’s handlebars. Almost immediately after this dangerous stunt, the young man lost control of his bike and fell onto the roadway. Since the events of this motorcycle accident occurred in such quick succession, other motorists driving along I-95 were unable to avoid a collision with the now pedestrian in the road, and he was run over by an oncoming 2013 Chevrolet Equinox and a 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe.
Brevard County emergency responders arrived at the crash site within a matter of minutes but were sadly unable to save the 31-year-old motorcyclist due to the extreme nature of his injuries and he was pronounced dead at the scene, as reported by Florida Highway Patrol’s public information officer Lt. Kim Montes.
The 19-year-old female driver of the 2013 Chevrolet Equinox and the 55-year-old male driver of the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe were uninjured in the incident. This accident remains under investigation by the detectives with the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office as well as officers with the Florida Highway Patrol.
