Earlier this month in Orlando, Florida, one man was killed in a fatal motorcycle accident that was caused by a driver who didn’t see the motorcyclist entering the intersection. According to a report by one local Florida news source, the motorcyclist arrived at a four-way stop shortly before another vehicle. The motorcyclist stopped and then proceeded through the intersection as normal. However, as he was part way through the intersection, the other driver entered the intersection and hit the motorcyclist.
Due to the force of the collision, the motorcyclist was thrown from the bike. Sadly, although the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, the injuries he sustained were fatal, and he was pronounced dead a short time later. Charges are currently pending against the other driver.
