South Florida, with its warm sun and coastal breezes, is an ideal place to enjoy a motorcycle. Amidst the diversion however, there is also risk on the roads. Here at Steinger, Iscoe and Greene, we have seen a number of motorcycle accidents that have resulted not from poor riding but from other motorists not paying enough attention to the roads and others sharing them. Even in the best of conditions, there are many variables that can cause a commute to go awry.
According to FHP, Cristobal Fuentes, 41, was heading eastbound on SW 8th Street on his motorcycle when Susan Greenberg, 56, was attempting to turn into Gator Park from a westbound lane. To avoid being hit by the vehicle, Fuentes swerved, losing control and hitting Greenberg’s pickup truck. He was thrown from his bike on impact. Unable to stop in time, the car behind Greenberg, driven by Juan Casas, 61, hit Fuentes.
Tragically, Fuentes was later pronounced deceased at Kendall Regional Hospital.
