Osceola County Deputy Receives Road Rash after Crashing Motorcycle

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on November 20, 2018

During the beginning of November, a motorcycle accident occurred within Osceola County that resulted in the injury of at least one person. According to reports from the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, the person in question was one of its own deputies. It seems that this deputy was riding on a motorcycle when the incident happened, although it is not clear if the deputy was also on duty or if the motorcycle was a vehicle owned by the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office.

Details relating to the accident itself are not entirely clear. The Sheriff’s Office, which is currently embroiled in another somewhat confusing investigation into collision involving its deputies, has stated that the incident took place around 12:30 in the afternoon and that it took place along the eastern lanes of Interstate 4 as it passes through the city of Deltona. Specifically, it appears as though the collision between the motorcycle and another vehicle happened at the 111th mile marker of this highway.

The motorcyclist was traveling in one of the highway’s outside lanes (the report did not state whether it was the leftmost lane or the rightmost one). Also driving down Interstate 4 was a white pickup truck. The pickup was traveling down the highway’s center lane. The report did not indicate if the truck was changing lanes or if it was the motorcyclist that was attempting to merge, but we do know that something occurred along the roadway to cause the motorcycle and the pickup truck to collide with one another.

The force of this collision caused the deputy on board the motorcycle to lose control of the vehicle. Subsequently, the bike crashed to the ground and the deputy was thrown from the seat and onto the pavement.

Emergency response crews rushed to the scene to offer assistance to the injured law enforcement officer. The officer was then taken from the scene of the collision to Halifax Hospital for treatment of his injuries. According to the report, the injuries were not life-threatening and instead consisted of a case of road rash.

The report included no details on whether or nor the person driving the car was injured.

As stated above, this is the second officer with the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office to be involved in a high-profile collision in less than a month.
