Motorcyclist Killed In Hit And Run Crash In Poinciana


After a car crash, Florida residents need to follow the rules. This means stopping at the accident scene and exchanging information. However, not everyone does this, for some reason or another.

Sadly, a hit and run accident led to fatality. A motorcycle rider was killed and the driver of the at-fault has still not been found. The accident occurred on the evening of May 19.

A 24-year-old man from Orlando on a motorcycle heading west on KOA Street in Poinciana, near KOA Elementary. At the same time, a Honda Accord was traveling south on Monterey Road. The car slowed down at the stop sign but did not fully stop, hitting the motorcycle. The car kept going, with the driver not stopping.

The impact caused the motorcycle to go in front of a Ford SUV. The two vehicles collided, and the motorcycle rider died at the accident scene.

The hit and run vehicle is described as a metallic green Honda Accord, model year 2008 to 2010. The vehicle’s front bumper was recovered from the accident scene, so the Honda is without a bumper. Anyone with information about the car or driver is asked to call Florida Highway Patrol.

What to Do After a Car Accident

A car accident can be a stressful situation. Here are some things you should do:

  • Stop at the accident scene. No matter how minor the accident may seem, you always need to stop and pull over. This is so you can check on others involved and get their information.
  • Ensure safety. Ensure everyone in your vehicle is safe. If there are injuries, call 911 immediately. If possible, move your vehicle to the side of the road to prevent further accidents.
  • Call the police. You should always call the police. They will document the incident and create an accident report, which is crucial for insurance claims.
  • Exchange information. Exchange names, addresses, phone numbers, driver’s license numbers, license plate numbers, and insurance details with the other driver involved. If there are witnesses, obtain their contact information as well.
  • Document the scene. Take pictures of the accident scene from different angles, including all vehicles involved and any property damage. Note the time, date, location, weather conditions, and any other pertinent details.
  • Seek medical attention. Even if you feel fine, some injuries may not be immediately apparent. It’s wise to see a doctor to ensure there are no hidden injuries.
  • Notify your insurance company. Report the accident to your insurance company as soon as possible. Provide them with all the information you have collected.
