Colonial Drive Crash | Orlando Accident & Injury Blog
Police with the Florida Highway Patrol issued a statement towards the end of last week regarding a Thursday morning crash which resulted in the death of one individual. The report describes how at close to 1:30 in the morning, Davis was on a motorcycle without a helmet as they drove down the western lanes of Colonial Drive. At the same time, Rohrbaugh, a 57-year-old Orlando resident was behind the wheel of a Hyundai as he drove down the center westbound lane of Colonial Drive.
Another unnamed Orlando pedestrian was struck by a car this week. This accident, which took place on Wednesday morning, happened along Interstate 4. Interstate 4 is located in downtown Orlando, making it a highway that carries a particularly high-volume of car traffic. While there are pedestrian bridges and safe options for foot traffic located at various points along this stretch of road, it seems as though the woman, who has not been named, was crossing the highway itself, trying to dodge cars as she made her way over the highways lanes. At the time of this writing, the Florida Highway Patrol is uncertain as to why the woman chose to cross the interstate.
On Wednesday evening, a 51-year-old woman was involved in a crash with a police cruiser that resulted in her being sent to the hospital.

According to the report, Deputy Wayne Lenihan, a 51-year-old, had engaged both the emergency lights and the siren as he made his way towards the intersection with Colonial Drive.
A man seriously injured in a hit-and-run accident involving a moped and a stolen Honda Accord died today. Doctors did everything they could for Clarence “Duffy” Hadler, a 64-year-old Orlando resident, but ultimately the toll from breaking both arms and legs as well as suffering from swelling of the brain proved to be too much. The crash, which happened on October 11th, occurred near to where Colonial Drive and Forsythe Road intersect. Hadler was driving his moped down Colonial Drive at 4:40am when the Honda Accord came up behind him and threw Hadler from his small vehcile. The driver of the Accord then sped away, leaving the badly injured Hadler behind.
