Police Looking for Suspect in Hit-and-Run Motorcycle Accident
Daytona Beach Police are looking for information in connection with a hit-and-run motorcycle accident that injured two riders on the afternoon of May 8. Police say the accident occurred around 3:55 in the afternoon at the intersection of Oakridge Boulevard and Peninsula Avenue. They say a Honda Accord was heading eastbound on Oakridge and ran a red light, causing the two victims on the motorcycle to strike the side of the Accord. The pair on the motorcycle had been traveling north on Peninsula when the Accord sped through the intersection. The driver of the Accord quickly left the accident scene.
The 61-year-old motorcyclist and his 58-year-old passenger were taken to a local hospital for treatment and are now recovering from their injuries at their home. Police are still looking for a gold-colored Honda Accord, year unknown, as well as the driver and at least one passenger that the victims saw, but did not see well enough to provide a description. Anyone with information about this Daytona Beach hit-and-run motorcycle accident should contact accident investigators at 386-671-5334.
People who cause an accident and then flee the scene to try to avoid taking responsibility for their negligence exhibit the most callous behavior. They know that they have injured and possibly killed someone, but instead of remaining at the scene, calling for help and rendering assistance, they drive away and leave the victims behind. The victims in this hit-and-run case are fortunate in that they were not seriously injured, but they will still have hospital bills, lost time at work, a ruined motorcycle and other damages through no fault of their own.
