Florida motorcyclist and passenger dead after collision

Every year, an alarming number of motorcycle accidents occur throughout the country. Although there are safety programs and awareness campaigns which aim to prevent these tragedies from taking place, these wrecks continue to claim lives and cause catastrophic injuries in Ocala and across Florida. When someone is injured in a motorcycle collision, it is very important for them to scrupulously assess their situation and do everything in their ability to move forward.

A motorcyclist and passenger lost their lives after they were struck by a truck that was attempting to turn left. According to law enforcement officials, the truck driver failed to yield and collided with the motorcycle on U.S. 17 in Putnam County.

The motorcyclist and passenger were unable to stop and struck the truck's right side before they were ejected from the motorcycle. Sadly, the two victims passed away in the crash, which took place at roughly 10 p.m. near San Mateo.

When someone is involved in a motorcycle accident, their entire life may change in an instant. While some victims are unable to survive a wreck, others may suffer from a permanent disability that creates all sorts of hardships such as an inability to work, physical pain, etc. From a brain injury to broken bones or a spinal injury, there are many different types of injuries that a motorcycle accident victim may struggle to recover from. When a motorcyclist's life has been turned upside down by a negligent driver, they may want to consider reaching out to a legal professional immediately.
