Fatal motorcycle accident happens in Florida

A Florida man has been killed after the motorcycle he was operating struck a six-year-old’s bicycle in a crosswalk around 6 p.m. on Monday night.

The motorcyclist was traveling westbound on a main street when he was unable to stop for a six-year-old riding his bicycle. The collision caused both the motorcyclist and the young boy to become airborne. According to officials, neither of them were wearing helmets at the time of the motorcycle accident.

The motorcyclist, a 40-year-old Elkton man, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. The six-year-old suffered severe injuries and was taken by helicopter to a hospital and is listed in critical condition. Police are still investigating the factors in the accident.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to the victim’s family and friends during this hard time.
