Motorcyclist Killed During Three-Vehicle Crash in Flagler County

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on June 30, 2023

The Florida Highway Patrol has started an investigation into a three-vehicle accident that claimed the life of one person and severely injured another early yesterday evening on State Road A1A in Flagler County.

According to responding troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol, it was 5:45 p.m. on Thursday, June 29, 2023, when a 56-year-old woman from Palm Coast was driving an SUV in the southbound direction of State Road A1A. Following directly behind this vehicle was a 42-year-old woman from St. Augustine who was driving a pickup truck. As the pair approached the upcoming intersection of Bay Drive and State Road A1A, the driver of the SUV pulled up and stopped at the traffic light in order to turn left onto Bay Drive. For reasons that are currently unknown, the driver of the pickup truck failed to yield and crashed into the back of the sport utility vehicle.

The impact from the rear-end collision caused the pickup truck to spin out of control through the intersection until it slammed into a motorcycle carrying two people that was driving in the northbound direction when the first crash occurred.

Flagler County emergency response teams and the Florida Highway Patrol were dispatched to the scene of the multi-vehicle collision and immediately transported the severely-injured 53-year-old driver of the motorcycle to AdventHealth Palm Coast. He passed away a few hours later. His passenger, a 52-year-old female, was medevaced by Flagler County FireFlight to Halifax Health in Daytona Beach with serious, life-threatening injuries. These two victims are residents of St. Augustine and were wearing their helmets at the time of the accident.

Reports indicate that the 42-year-old driver of the pickup truck was not wearing a seatbelt, however, she was not injured. The 56-year-old driver of the SUV and her two adult female passengers were also unharmed.

The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office redirected local traffic for several hours while crash debris was removed and evidence was gathered by investigators.
