A 63-year-old motorcyclist was killed in a vehicle wreck Saturday night in Citrus County.
The crash occurred around 10:30 p.m. at N Citrus Avenue and W Emerald Oaks Boulevard.
Troopers believe another man driving a GMC Terrain was traveling eastbound on West Emerald Blvd. and traveled across the intersection and into the southbound lanes, in the path of a motorcycle.
The motorcyclist was transported to a local hospital where he passed away.
The crash remains under investigation and charges are pending, according to the report.
Motorcycle riders have the same rights to the road as other vehicles. Other drivers do not always recognize that fact, though. All bikers are at the mercy of other motorists, so when they fail to share the road or keep an eye out for bikers, serious injuries and even wrongful death occur. When accidents happen, insurance companies are quick to blame the motorcyclist simply because riding a bike has risks. This unfair thinking is why you need a Citrus County Motorcycle Accident Lawyer at Whittel & Melton working on your side to make sure you are fully compensated for your injuries. We also help surviving family members recover compensation for their loved one’s wrongful death.
