Motorcycles are known for efficiently zipping around town, but their speeds can leave riders in a precarious position if they aren’t careful.
Unfortunately, a bike that was traveling at 120 miles per hour was involved in a crash during the morning of July 30, which ended up killing an unidentified rider.
It smashed into an SUV at 8626 Citrus Boulevard, which is not far from the Treasure Coast Wildlife Center. One adult and two children who were in the SUV were taken to a nearby hospital. The children were reported to have suffered minor injuries.
The community is not surprised to hear that the motorcyclist reached speeds that high, as the road they were on is straight for a seven-mile stretch.
The audible sounds of the accident will remain in the memories of witnesses for a long time.
“You hear it you automatically know what it is,” nearby resident Hanna Timmons said. “It was gnarly, it was loud, it was traumatizing, it was bad.” Via WPTV.com.
It will be interesting to see if the community discusses the addition of speed bumps or traffic lights on this part of the road, to prevent incidents like this from happening in the future.
