Florida Highway Patrol troopers investigating a fatal head-on collision between a motorcycle and a car say that the motorcyclist was talking on his cell phone when he lost control on a curve and struck the car. The accident occurred very early in the morning on Jan. 9, on Chase Road near Jack Nicklaus Parkway in Orange County. Troopers report that the victim, a 40-year-old Winter Garden man, was ejected from his Honda motorcycle by the collision and was pronounced dead from his injuries at the scene of the accident.
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.
