Volusia County, FL (June 3, 2019) - A motorcyclist is dead following a crash involving multiple vehicles on Sunday, June 2nd. The crash happened around 1:30 p.m. on East New York Avenue, near Prevatt Avenue.
Officials say that the man was riding a Harley-Davidson and was stopped at a red light when he was hit from behind by an International Truck. The force from the collision caused the motorcycle to be pushed underneath a Toyota sedan in front of the bike. The motorcycle then burst into flames, killing the rider at the scene. The other two drivers sustained minor injuries in the crash.
The truck driver has been identified as 28-year-old Andrew August, of Jupiter. The crash remains under investigation and there is no word on potential charges at this time.
