Orange Blossom Trail fatal motorcycle crash
Preliminary collision reports from troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol indicate that a 31-year-old motorcyclist sustained fatal injuries last Saturday afternoon during an accident with a pickup truck in a busy Osceola County intersection.
Motorcycle accidents are some of the most dangerous collisions that can take place on the road. As one might expect, this is true more for the driver of the motorcycle than for those in cars or other vehicles involved. Unlike people within cars, motorcyclists do not have airbags tucked into steering wheels, door handles, and dashboards. This means that when they are involved in a crash, the thing taking the brunt of the impact is the body of the motorcyclist themselves. Sometimes, however, motorcycles are involved in collisions with other motorcycles. In this case, it is a sad fact that both individuals are still extremely exposed to the fatal ramifications of such a violent impact.
