A motorcyclist was killed on Saturday, Dec. 22, when a driver turned into his path. Regular readers of this blog will know this is a distressingly common scenario in motorcycle accidents in and around the Orlando metropolitan area. We urge riders and drivers alike to exercise extra care when they are on area roadways, as this rider is the eighth motorcyclist killed in the last few weeks alone. Drivers need to take an extra moment before pulling out into traffic or changing lanes to make extra sure that the path is clear. You should ride defensively and anticipate that drivers may not be able to see them well, especially at night.
Florida Highway Patrol troopers report that one man was killed and another injured in a recent motorcycle accident at John Young Parkway and Blackstone Drive in Orange County. They say that a 30-year-old Kissimmee man suffered fatal injuries and a 36-year-old Orlando man was seriously injured when their motorcycles were forced off the road by a white van. The investigation is still underway, but troopers say that the two motorcycles and the van were northbound on John Young when the van’s driver attempted to move into the inside lane. The maneuver cut off the riders, forcing them into the median where they lost control of their motorcycles.
