Pedestrian Killed, Motorcyclist Injured after Crash in Seminole County

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on November 18, 2017

This past Friday night, a pedestrian was walking along Orange Blossom Trail in Seminole County, nearing the intersection with Orange Blossom Trail and Overland Road, when he decided to cross the street. At the same time that the pedestrian, who has recently been identified by troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol as a 64-year-old Orlando resident McKeeby, began trying to cross from the western headed side of Orange Blossom Trail to the eastbound side of the road a motorcyclist neared the area.

According to the official report from the Florida Highway Patrol, it was just around 9:15 in the evening when the motorcyclist collided with the elderly McKeeby. The report did not mention whether or not McKeeby was crossing the street at a designated crossing area or if he chose an area of the street not specifically set up for pedestrians. The report also failed to mention if there is any evidence to prove or disprove the influencing nature of alcohol or other impairing substances on either of the two individuals involved.

When the emergency response services arrived at the scene of the crash, there was nothing they could do for McKeeby. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The motorcyclist, an unnamed 19-year-old, was able to receive immediate treatment from paramedics who then loaded the biker into an ambulance which took them to Orlando Regional Medical Center. It is believed that the motorcyclist was admitted to the medical center as being in critical condition. No report has yet emerged on the continuing condition of the motorcyclist and it is not known if they were expected to survive the crash.

An investigation into the events that lead to the death of at least one person in the crash between a pedestrian and a motorcycle is still underway. While the area was initially examined and cleaned up all the northern leading lanes of Orange Blossom Trail were shut down. It is believed that the police did conclude their preliminary work and reopen the entire roadway later that same night, although the Florida Highway Patrol report did not indicate just how long the roadway was closed.
