Rider Seriously Injured in Florida Hit-and-Run Motorcycle Accident
Police are investigating a hit-and-run motorcycle accident in Casselberry that sent a rider to the hospital with serious injuries. The accident occurred at State Road 436 and Casselton Drive, just north of Aloma Avenue. Police are looking for the driver of a black SUV or sedan who struck the rider and then fled the scene. They believe that the motorcyclist and the driver who struck him were traveling side-by-side in separate lanes when the driver may have swerved into the rider’s lane to avoid construction work in the roadway. They believe that the maneuver caused the driver to collide with and seriously injure the rider. Anyone with any information about the accident is asked to contact the Casselberry Police Department.
A motorcyclist struck by a passenger vehicle of any kind often suffers injuries that take a long time and a considerable amount of money to treat. Riders usually suffer serious and sometimes debilitating injuries such as these:
- Compound bone fractures
- Crushing tissue injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Fractured vertebrae
- Ruptured internal organs and other life-threatening conditions
- Deep lacerations
- Other injuries that require extended hospital stays and physical rehabilitation regimens
Some of these injuries are treatable while others change the course of victims’ lives forever, preventing them from working and providing for their families and enjoying their favorite activities.
