Lake County, FL (April 28, 2019) - A motorcyclist died in a crash on Sunday, April 28th. The crash took place in the afternoon hours on County Road 455 at its intersection with Cavallo Drive.
The Florida Highway Patrol responded to the crash scene. The motorcycle and one vehicle were involved in the collision. Troopers pronounced the motorcyclist dead at the scene.

A serious motorcycle accident can occur at any time. No one expects that they will be involved in a serious crash when they get in their vehicle. The reality though is that there are approximately 250,000 injury accidents reported each year in Florida and many of these accidents will, unfortunately, involve serious injury.
