An Orange County motorcycle accident has killed one rider and seriously injured another, according to accident investigators with the Florida Highway Patrol. FHP officials say that the accident occurred on State Road 520 at Beachline around 11:00 a.m. on September 3. They say a motorcycle carrying two riders was being pulled over by an Orange County Sherriff’s Deputy for speeding when it was struck from behind by a pickup truck. Officers say the rider had slowed to pull over when the truck came from behind quickly and collided with the motorcycle without slowing to avoid the collision.
A woman driving a 1997 Honda was driving through a tollbooth’s E-Pass lane on State Road 408 on June 21, 2007, when an 18-wheeler Orange County trash truck carrying 80,000 pounds of garbage struck her. The Orlando Sentinel reported that police issued no citations, but Orange County did agree to pay nearly $3,000 to compensate the accident victim for neck injuries and damage to her car.
