Motorcyclist Killed In Crash Involving Semitruck
A motorcyclist was killed in a Martin County crash involving a semitruck, the Florida Highway Patrol said. The crash took place near SE Bridge Rd., on SE Dixie Highway.
Troopers said the crash took place while the driver of the truck, which was heading south on SE Dixie Highway, was trying to turn left into a ramp.
The motorcyclist, identified as a resident of Hobe Sound, was riding north on the same road at a high speed when he hit the truck in the left turning lane, troopers said.
First emergency responders arrived at the site of the crash soon after the accident happened and the victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
Acevedo died at the scene, according to the Highway Patrol. He was wearing a helmet during the crash, according to the crash report.
The driver of the truck was not injured, troopers said.
FHP said troopers are still investigating the crash.
This route is partially closed due to the severity of the crash, causing traffic delays. Vehicles are pulling into nearby side streets. It is best to avoid this route and use an alternative route such as Landstar Blvd.
Attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this accident. “It is so important to be aware of motorcyclists on the road because of the severity of their injuries in accidents. There was a public service campaign that encouraged drivers to look left, right and left again just to provide added protection to motorcyclists. If you were injured in an accident and want to discuss your rights, please contact my office for a free consolation”.
