Florida man killed in US 192 motorcycle accident

A Florida man lost his life after being injured in a two-vehicle crash on Monday, April 8. The motorcycle accident took place on US 192 in Melbourne.

A 51-year-old West Melbourne woman was headed south on Nina Jean Drive in a 1990 Ford Probe. She was trying to cross US 192 when she came into the path of a 2002 Honda motorcycle that was headed east in the highway's outer lane. The man driving the motorcycle took evasive action and attempted to slow down by using the brakes, which sent the bike skidding into the side of the Ford Probe.

The man driving the motorcycle was a 36-year-old from Palm Bay. He was brought to Holmes Regional Medical Center where he eventually succumbed to his injuries. The victim was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident. Motorcycle riders over 21 years of age who meet certain insurance requirements are not required to wear helmets in Florida.

Initial reports by the Florida Highway Patrol indicate that alcohol was not believed to be a factor in the accident. However, the investigation is ongoing, and charges are pending.

In motorcycle collision cases like this one in Florida, there is a possibility that the driver of the car could be found liable for the man's death if the driver was negligent in any way. The police investigation might help shed light on exactly what happened. If a driver is found to be liable for a fatal motorcycle crash, the victim's family could consider enlisting the help of a personal injury attorney to determine if compensation is a possibility. Victims' families might opt to seek payment for expenses as well as pain and suffering.
