Police Search For Driver After Motorcyclist Hit From Behind



POSTED: 6:57 am EST March 21, 2006
UPDATED: 7:00 am EST March 21, 2006


A motorcyclist died Monday night in Titusville when he was struck from behind by a car and thrown from his motorcycle on State Road 405, police told Local 6 News partner Florida Today.

Police are looking Tuesday for the driver of the other vehicle, who fled the scene on foot, Titusville police spokesman Warren Van Vuren said in a press release.

The victim, whose identity was not released by police pending notification of next of kin, died at the scene of the collision.

About 8 p.m., a blue 1986 Chevrolet Caprice rear-ended the victim's black Honda Shadow motorcycle as they both headed south on SR 405, south of Singleton Avenue.

Investigators are looking into whether the driver of the Chevrolet Caprice was racing another vehicle, before the car hit the motorcycle, Van Vuren said.

An initial investigation showed the motorcycle was driving properly and didn't cause the accident. Police believe the Caprice was traveling at a high speed.

A description of the driver of the Caprice is forthcoming as investigators continue their investigation, Van Vuren said.

I hate to hear stories like this.....I could not imagine the type of person that could do something like that and then leave the scene....fatality or not.

R.I.P. Rider!!! Yes, stuff like this makes me angry but I just dont know who to be angry at.... Some times stories are exactly what they are STORIES.. You just never know what can happen, we all knew the risk before we got into this sport & hopefully we all know the risk EVERY time we get on our bikes.... The point Im trying to get at is that we could easily be misinformed on the true story when it comes to accidents (Never know, cops could have been chasing that caprice) not trying to flame on them but I feel stuff like this is or isnt what it may seem!!!!! Just a rant & 2cents....

Always sad to hear of another rider down. But the worst is when ppl cant man up to their actions. Hope he's caught and rots in jail

A metal spiked pineapple would be better.

In a case like this, was there anything the biker could have done? Im not always perfect, but I usually try to keep an eye on my surroundings, including things coming behind me, but in this case, maybe he had nowhere to go or something. Im always paranoid about getting rear ended in stop and go traffic (which I encounter all the time here).

everybody always gives me sh1t when I stereotype about the Mexicans being illegal and all, but in this case with the car being a Caprice , the dude is definitely black!
I would confirm this if they had said it had 54 inch rims on it! :eviltongu
