Florida motorcycle accident proves fatal

People who ride motorcycles know all too well that they often face more danger than other motorists. Though most riders are careful to observe the rules of the road and take safety precautions such as wearing helmets, when another vehicle strikes a motorcycle, it can be deadly. Such was the case for one man here in Florida who died during a motorcycle accident involving another vehicle. Police are still searching for answers to the question of what happened.

Authorities say that the motorcycle rider was driving on a recent late afternoon. Another man, driving a car eastbound on the same road, attempted to make a left hand turn. The motorist allegedly did not yield to the motorcycle rider, and then he crashed into the car.

The motorcyclist was thrown from his bike and landed on the road. It is unclear whether he received any medical attention, though officials report that the man passed away in the accident. The Florida Highway Patrol is still investigating exactly what happened and have not released the name of the motorcyclist, since his next of kin had yet to be notified.

Though it is not known whether authorities will charge anyone involved in the motorcycle accident with a criminal offense, the family of the motorcyclist may decide to pursue a civil claim. Such a claim could be filed against any parties deemed responsible for the cash. Any monetary damages awarded from a successfully litigated claim could be used to cover outstanding medical, funeral or other monetary damages the family may have incurred due to this tragedy.
