Police with the Lake County Police Department are currently investigating an incident that took place early on Sunday morning and resulted in the death of one person. According to the initial report, the accident occurred at close to 1:15 in the morning and involved a single vehicle. This vehicle, a motorcycle, was being driven by a Williams, a 36-year-old Eustis resident. It is not clear just where Williams was coming from or where he was going, but it seems that he had made his way to the westbound lane of County Road 46A and was nearing the intersection of this street and Red Tail Boulevard when he lost control of the motorcycle.
Williams and the motorcycle careened off of the road and onto the shoulder. Unable to regain control of the speeding bike, Williams was thrown from his seat when the motorcycle slammed into a guardrail.
It is not clear how long it took before the emergency response teams arrived, nor is it clear just who called them in the first place. When the paramedics and officers with the Lake County Police Department did reach the area where Williams had crashed his motorcycle, there was nothing that they could do for the man. Although the report did not make clear whether or not Williams succumbed to his injuries before or after the paramedics arrived, it is clear from the official statement that he died before leaving the scene of the crash.
No other individuals were harmed in the accident and it is believed that no other vehicles were involved.
An investigation is currently ongoing as authorities look for answers to give to Williams’ wife and five children regarding his death. The first report did not indicate whether or not Williams had undergone any testing for the presence of alcohol or other substances, a question that is not unreasonably present in all circumstances of this sort. Other possible reasons behind Williams’ untimely death are bad road conditions or a sudden medical emergency that rendered Williams incapable of operating the motorcycle. The Lake County Police Department will continue updating this story as new facets develop.
