Motorcyclist killed in crash on Poinciana Boulevard
CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH. LOOK TWICE, SAVE A LIFE.
As drivers on the roadway we should always take precautions to look twice ensuring no motorcycles are coming before making left-hand turns or changing lanes, as a motorcyclist can be riding in your blind spot.
Yesterday, a 52-year-old man was killed after Florida Highway Patrol troopers say an SUV crashed into his motorcycle in Osceola County.
The crash was reported at 3:20 p.m. near Laguna Bay Circle, according to troopers.
According to the FHP crash report, the motorcyclist was traveling south on Poinciana Boulevard when the driver of an SUV attempted to change lanes and struck the left side of the motorcycle.
There are more than one million drivers licensed to ride motorcycles in Florida and many more motorcyclists who visit the state because of year-round good weather and smooth roads.
However, there were more than 10,000 motorcycle crashes in 2016, according to the latest state statistics available.
Many of us either ride a motorcycle or know someone who rides a motorcycle. Which is why its so important to make sure people are aware to LOOK TWICE – SAVE A LIFE.
