Orlando Motorcycle Accident
A late September article on nwfdailynews.com describes a Florida motorcycle accident that resulted in two people suffering injuries. The article claims that the motorcycle accident occurred on US Highway 98 around 3 pm on September 27 when two motorcyclists were traveling eastbound and one changed lanes at the same time as the driver of a Honda Accord to pass a truck. The motorcycle that changed lanes was driven by a 53-year-old Georgia woman who immediately had to take evasive action when the driver of the Accord braked to avoid hitting the motorcyclist. Florida Highway Patrol officers investigating the accident say that the Georgia woman lost control of her 2004 Harley Davidson, which overturned and slid more than 300 feet.
As reported in the Miami Herald, a 50-year-old London woman died from injuries she suffered in a central Florida hit-and-run motorcycle accident on U.S. Highway 192 in Lake County in August. She was a passenger on a motorcycle and she and the driver were both thrown from the motorcycle when struck by the car.
A motorcycle rider suffered serious injuries recently when a car making a u-turn crossed into his lane causing the 45-year-old rider to slam into the hood of a 2000 Mazda. The Orlando Sentinel claims that the man injured in the Florida motorcycle accident was driving his motorcycle south on Southwest 142nd Avenue when the Mazda making a u-turn struck him at the intersection of Thoroughbred Court.
