State Road 50 Accident
An unnamed woman was attempting to cross State Road 436 in Orange County on Monday morning when she was hit by a passing car. The Florida Highway Patrol has issued a statement that sums up the current information around the case, and their report indicates that the crash took place near 5:10 in the morning, close to where State Road 436 crosses Old Cheney Highway.
Shortly before 3:40pm on Saturday, two vehicles, a pickup truck and a motorcycle were driving down Colonial Drive’s left lane when they collided. According to the report from the Florida Highway Patrol, the crash happened near to where State Road 50 and Saint Nicholas Avenue intersect. The report goes on to say that the motorcyclist was attempting to slow down before driving into a break in the median—probably attempting to turn around or to cross the road into a shopping center—when the accident occurred. Witnesses to the scene state that when the motorcyclist slowed down the pickup kept driving forwards at its current speed. This caused the front of the pickup to collide with the rear of the motorcycle.
