Motorcycle crashes in Florida can be especially dangerous for victims. A motorcycle provides comparatively little protection in comparison to cars and other motor vehicles. This lack of protection often leads to serious crashes and major injuries or death. Each year, motorcycle accident deaths account for about 15% of all reported fatal traffic accidents in Florida.
We would like to offer our thoughts and condolences to the family of the deceased motorcyclist following this deadly motorcycle crash in Hudson.
