Interstate 4 Motorcycle Accident
On Wednesday night, a 53-year-old man from Orlando was riding on his motorcycle northbound on U.S. 17-92 when he was involved in an accident with another vehicle. Although the accident is still under investigation by the Florida Highway Patrol, an official statement has been released that indicates that the motorcyclist, whose name was not released in the immediate aftermath of the incident, died as a result of the injuries he sustained.
A horrific motorcycle accident closed the westbound lanes of Interstate 4 for nearly three hours recently near Maitland. Maitland Police say that there was traffic backup from the intersection with State Road 436 in Altamonte Springs to well past the intersection with Lake Mary Boulevard. Details about the crash were still unknown, but Maitland Police say the accident began when the rider collided with a car. The impact threw the rider an undisclosed distance, and he was unresponsive when paramedics arrived at the scene. He was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center where he was listed in critical condition.
