Two people are dead and at least three others were injured after a motorcycle collided with a FHP Emergency Services Unit truck, police and fire department officials said.
Cops and paramedics responded to the wreck at Fort Pierce and East 96th Street on St. Lucie County’s Upper East Side where a Triumph Sport bike, going southbound on Fort Pierce, collided with a heavy-duty FHP tactical rig from the ESU Truck 2 unit traveling eastbound on 96th Street.
“I was inside with my coworker and I heard a noise. Everybody came running out,” said a doorman in a building adjacent to the wreck.
It was a long sound, I’m thinking it was the bike being dragged thirty feet.
“As soon as the crash happened all those cops just ran over to the poor guy on the ground and started to give him CPR, the cops ran over in less than a second.”
The unidentified 32-year-old male motorcyclist died and an unidentified adult passenger was also declared dead in a hospital, according to cops.
Three other people were also being treated at Fort Pierce Hospital, but police could not say how they were injured.
The cause of the crash is still under investigation by the FHP Collision Investigation Squad.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in a fatality. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
