Orlando motorcycle accident lawyer James O. Cunningham is urging all motorcyclists to ride defensively and exercise extra care after the second fatal accident within nearly a week on Curry Ford Road. On November 10, a 22-year-old man was killed when a sport utility vehicle violated his right of way by turning into his path. The most recent accident occurred around 9:30 a.m. on Nov. 18 when a 20-year-old rider was traveling east on Curry Ford Road and was cut off by a Hyundai Electra driven by a 66-year-old Orlando woman. Florida Highway Patrol troopers investigating the accident say that the woman was attempting to turn left from Pinebranch Drive onto Curry Ford when she turned directly into the motorcyclist’s path.
A recent accident that seriously injured a motorcyclist has resulted in the rider and the driver who struck him with his pickup truck having citations for different moving violations. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the accident occurred on U.S. 19 just north of County Road 351A when the 21-year-old driver of a 2007 Chevrolet pickup truck violated the right-of-way of the motorcyclist by driving directly into the rider’s path. A 41-year-old passenger in the truck also suffered injuries in the collision. The 52-year-old motorcyclist was riding a 2006 Yamaha when he attempted to enter the four-lane divided highway but was cut off by the pickup truck.
