Two Motorcyclists Die in Brevard County Accident
A motorcycle crash that took place within Brevard County during the end of November is behind the death of two individuals who were on a motorcycle and headed down the northern lanes of U.S. 1. Reports from the Florida Highway Patrol working within the county indicated that the incident took place sometime during the day on Sunday, November 24th. What exactly caused the accident was not included in the information compiled for the initial report, suggesting that the investigation into the incident remains ongoing and incomplete.
At the time of this writing, the Florida Highway Patrol has informed the public about many of the factors relating to the case, although numerous information gaps still exist. We do know, however, that only one motorcycle was involved and that the driver of this motorcycle was a 72-year-old individual. Seated on the bike behind the 72-year-old was a 59-year-old. The relationship between the two individuals on the bike is not known, and all the reports said on the subject was that the 59-year-old was a passenger on the bike.
As the two neared the intersection of U.S. 1 and Mirkwood Street, something happened to cause the driver of the bike to lose control of the vehicle. Unable to regain this control, the bike then fell onto its side, an action that caused both the driver of the bike and the passenger to be thrown violently from the vehicle. Unfortunately, neither the driver nor the passenger were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash, a factor that very likely contributed to the severity of the injuries that they suffered in the incident.
It is not known who called 9-1-1 to report the accident, but shortly after the crash took place, numerous emergency response crews had rushed to the site and were beginning to treat the driver and the passenger. It is not known if either of them were alive when emergency response crews arrived, and it is not clear if either of them were rushed from the scene of the crash to a nearby hospital. It is clear that after the accident, the severity of the injuries sustained by the two motorists was more severe than any emergency medical team could tend to. Both the driver and the passenger aboard the bike were declared dead sometime after the emergency medical crews reached the site.
It is not believe that anyone else was involved or injured in the accident.
