Bradenton Man Killed in 2-Vehicle Accident on Cortez Road

A Bradenton man died from injuries suffered in a two-vehicle accident the morning of January 1 on Cortez Road.

According to representatives from the Florida Highway Patrol, the accident occurred just after 10:30 a.m. A Palmetto man driving a 2017 Chevrolet Equinox reportedly made a left turn in front of a 2007 Suzuki VS800, close to the Home Depot located on Cortez Road.

The driver of the motorcycle was a 23-year-old man who was forced to take immediate evasive action. However, he was unable to avoid a collision. The motorcycle slid on its left side and collided into the right side of the Equinox. The motorcyclist sustained serious injuries and did not survive the crash. Charges were pending, according to an FHP report.

Drivers must watch out for motorcyclists

Some of the most common crashes involving motorcycles are failure-to-yield accidents, in which a left-turning vehicle fails to yield the right of way to an oncoming motorcyclist. This often occurs because motorcycles are smaller than other vehicles, which can make them less visible. Still, it is the responsibility of everyone on the road to make sure the way is clear and that they have the right of way before they turn, especially when making left turns across traffic on busy highways.

For more information on the steps you should take if you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident due to a negligent driver, speak with an experienced Bradenton personal injury lawyer at Goldman Babboni Fernandez & Walsh.
