What Happens When Alcohol Plays A Part In A FL Motorcycle Accident?
We’re used to blaming the motorcyclist, but in actuality, more than half of Florida motorcycle accidents are caused by the driver of the automobile. Numerous motorcycle fatalities are caused by other drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Substance abuse, or DUI, is the second leading predictor of FL motorcycle accidents.
Very recently, an intoxicated auto driver was put behind bars for causing a motorcycle fatality. The 57-year-old victim, Richard Bean, was riding his motorcycle in Tuscon, Florida when 31-year-old Valdez made an unsafe turn in front of Bean, knocking him off the road. This Florida motorcycle accident caused severe injuries, inevitably leading to Bean’s death in the ambulance on the way to the hospital.
