Two Florida motorcycle wrecks in one week

Two motorcycle accidents happened in Florida this week, killing one person and critically injuring two others, report TBO and the Brevard Times.

On Sunday, a 52-year-old Tampa man died from injuries sustained in a crash in Hernando County. About 1 p.m. a 58-year-old Brooksville man was driving a Mercedes when he turned left and struck the motorcycle.

The man on the motorcycle was wearing a helmet, but died later that day in the hospital.

On Merritt Island Thursday around 2 a.m., a 23-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman, both of Cocoa, were on a motorcycle when a 29-year-old woman from Orlando, driving a Nissan Altima, came up behind them. The Nissan driver failed to slow down behind the motorcycle, struck the motorcycle, and continued to travel with the motorcycle under the front of the car.

The two people on the motorcycle were thrown off it and landed on the paved shoulder. Both are in critical condition at Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne.

Motorcyclists follow the same motor vehicle laws as cars and have the same rights on our highways. When drivers approach motorcycles on the road, it’s important that the driver should be extra cautious and give the motorcyclist plenty of room.

the family and the friends of the man who died in this Florida motorcycle accident.
