Multi-Motorcycle Accident in Washington County Leaves One Dead and Three Others Injured
WASHINGTON COUNTY, FLORIDA – As reported online by www.dothaneagle.com, one man is dead and three others injured following an accident involving three motorcycles.*
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a 43-year-old Texas man was killed, and three other individuals from Texas sustained serious injuries when three motorcycles collided on eastbound Interstate 10 in Washington County.
Available information indicates that one motorcycle traveling in the inside lane of eastbound Interstate 10 slowed down to allow two additional motorcycles to catch up. A second motorcycle attempted to catch up with the first motorcycle and subsequently had to slam on the brakes to avoid a collision. Unfortunately, the second motorcycle was unable to avoid colliding with the first motorcycle. The collision between the first two motorcycles caused both of these motorcycles to collide with a third motorcycle.
Reports indicate that all motorcyclists were thrown from their motorcycles, with one person sustaining fatal injuries, and three others suffering serious injuries. Those who survived the multi-motorcycle accident were transported to a local hospital for treatment. It is unclear whether additional factors, such as driving under the influence, inattentive driving, other traffic violations, or weather conditions, among other factors, played a role in the cause of this tragic multi-motorcycle accident.
