A crash that happened in Orange County on Thursday, June 28th, is under investigation by the Florida Highway Patrol. Initial reports on the incident state that the motorcycle accident occurred shortly after 9:00 in the morning and involved at least two vehicles: a 2012 Toyota Camry and a Yamaha motorcycle. The two vehicles were traveling down either Old Cheney Highway or Coletta Drive, and it was at the intersection of these two streets that the collision took place.

Behind the wheel of the Camry was a 76-year-old individual. As they reached the intersection, they slowed down and eventually came to a stop as per the directions of the signs in the area. It is not clear how much other traffic was in the location at this point in time. It is also not clear if the motorcycle was also stopped at the intersection when the Camry reached the area.

A 49-year-old was atop the motorcycle, headed either the opposite way as the Camry or along the cross street. The report from the Florida Highway Patrol did not indicate whether or not this individual had stopped at the intersection like the Camry or whether they just continued to drive through and ignore the traffic directions. The report also failed to state which of the two vehicles is believed to have reached the intersection first, thus leaving us in the dark as to which of the two motorists had the right of way.

The driver of the Camry pulled their car directly into the path of the oncoming Yamaha, and the person riding the motorcycle — who was wearing a helmet at the time — was not able to avoid the car. The motorcycle then collided with the front right side of the Toyota, throwing the biker from the Yamaha and causing them to sustain tremendous injuries.

The emergency response crews were notified regarding the incident and they subsequently rushed to the area to provide medical treatment to anyone who needed it. It is not clear if the driver of the Camry suffered any injuries in the crash, but the motorcyclist was taken by ambulance to Florida Hospital East where doctors and nurses attempted to diminish the effect of their injuries. Unfortunately, the extent of the damage was too much for even advanced medical care and the motorcyclist was declared dead sometime after arriving at the hospital.

It is not clear if any charges are pending, and the crash is still considered as under investigation.
