The crash happened on the Florida Turnpike near Mile Marker 159 in Martin County. Reports from the scene indicate that two people were on the motorcycle when it collided with a car.
A 52-year-old man was driving the motorcycle with a 45-year-old passenger at the time of the crash, and both were transferred to the hospital.

Attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate accident involving a motorcycle: “This is another tragic reminder of why all drivers must be hyper vigilant for motorcyclists on the road. We hope that the injured parties talk with an experienced trial lawyer to learn about their rights. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation to find out what are your rights”.
