There are a lot of motorcycles on South Florida roads these days, even if drivers of other vehicles don’t necessarily notice them. Motorcycle riders have all the same rights as any other drivers. However, when an accident involving a motorcycle occurs it is often because the driver of another vehicle was acting carelessly.
Two people were killed when an accident involving a motorcycle, a bicycle and an SUV recently occurred near West Melbourne. The accident reportedly happened when a man riding the bicycle attempted to cross a highway and moved right into the path of the man on the motorcycle. Both of the men were thrown from their vehicles upon impact and the man on the bike, who was 50-years-old was not wearing a helmet.
