Orlando Sees an Alarming Rise in Motorcycle Accident Fatalities

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on August 8, 2021

A recent string of severe motorcycle accidents in the Orlando area have Orange County authorities on high alert and working overtime to determine the exact nature of these collisions, as well as hopefully provide some much-needed closure to the family and friends who have lost their loved ones.

In the first of two serious motorcycle collisions to occur over the weekend in Orange County, officers with the Orlando Police Department were dispatched to the 1800 block of North Orange Avenue shortly after 3:00 a.m. Friday morning in response to an accident involving a motorcyclist and another motorist on the road. As the OPD arrived at the scene, they quickly discovered the severity of the incident due to the sheer damage to both vehicles involved and the fact that the yet-to-be-named biker had already succumbed to their injuries and passed away before EMTs were able to medically assist the individual. Traffic homicide detectives are currently investigating this case and no further updates have been given to the public at this time.

The second severe crash involving a motorcycle happened just a few minutes after midnight on Sunday, August 8, 2021, when authorities with the local branch of the Florida Highway Patrol were sent to investigate an auto accident on State Road 520 near Maxim Parkway. According to their preliminary reports, a 37-year-old motorcyclist from Oviedo and three other motorists were travelling in the westbound direction of S.R. 520 when the vehicle directly behind the motorcycle attempted to pass the biker. As the driver performed this maneuver, they unintentionally sideswiped the Oviedo man which caused him to be ejected from the motorcycle and run over by two other cars in the vicinity. FHP officers indicate that the biker was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident and that he sadly died before Orange County emergency teams could transport him to a nearby trauma center. This case remains under investigation.
