SUV Heading Wrong Way Caused Fatal Motorcycle Accident

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on January 22, 2013

Florida Highway Patrol troopers say that a sports utility vehicle driving the wrong way caused a series of accidents that killed a motorcyclist. Troopers report that the accidents involved four vehicles in addition to the motorcycle and shut down 13th Street in St. Cloud, a major roadway in the city, for eight hours. They report that a 73-year-old St. Cloud woman was driving the SUV on Oct. 15 on U.S. Highway 192 — known as 13th Street in St. Cloud — when she fainted or became otherwise unable to control her vehicle. Her Chevrolet Equinox collided head-on with a westbound Harley-Davidson operated by a 54-year-old Barefoot Bay man around 3:30 that afternoon. The rider was rushed to Orlando Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead from his injuries at 5:50 p.m.
