North Port, FL (April 2, 2021) - A motorcyclist sustained serious injuries following a crash in North Port on Friday. The accident happened at the intersection of Song Street and East Price Boulevard.

Motorcycle accidents in Florida contribute to thousands of injuries and about 500 deaths per year. While many Floridians enjoy riding motorcycles, they come with notable danger. Motorcyclists are far more likely than other motorists to be hurt in an accident. This is because the motorcycle offers no protection from the force of a serious collision.
We wish to offer our most sincere thoughts and well-wishes to the motorcyclist's family following this motorcycle crash in North Port.
