One man is dead after a hit and run accident in Miami Gardens. According to a spokesperson for the Florida Highway Patrol, officers arrived on the scene near NW Second Avenue and 181st on Monday July 6, 2020 around 11am. The crash occurred when a black sedan collided into a man who was riding a grey motorcycle. Surveillance video from a nearby camera captured what appeared to be a black sedan making a left turn onto Northwest 181st Street, right into the path of the motorcyclist heading southbound. The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. FHP said the driver behind the wheel of the black sedan fled the scene of the accident and FHP believes trash on foot. The driver who hit the motorcyclist could face a range of charges including leaving the scene of an accident involving a fatality. Our deepest condolences to the loved ones of the man who was killed in this tragic accident.
Hit and Run Motorcycle Accidents in South Florida
When a person intentionally, negligently or recklessly causes injury to another in a motorcycle accident, the person who was injured has a legal right to file a personal injury claim and/or file a lawsuit against the at-fault party in order to recover compensation for their injuries. In some instances, the personal injuries can be severe and possibly lead to death. This is especially true in motorcycle accidents. While the types of injuries that can be sustained in motorcycle accidents can vary—fatality rates tend to be much higher when compared to car accidents only involving motor vehicles. This is largely due to the fact that motorcycles offer little protection from road hazards, other vehicles, and weather conditions in the event of an accident. As such, most motorcycle accidents are caused when a rider collides with another car or some type of fixed object on the roadway or when a rider loses control of their bike due to weather conditions or road hazards. Additionally, some motorcycle accidents are hit-and-run accidents. Hit and run accidents occur when the at-fault party leaves the scene of an accident after a crash. As it pertains to motorcycle accidents, this behavior can be especially egregious because the motorcyclist may be left in life-threatening condition. Tragically, hit and run accidents involving motorcycles take the life of many riders each year in Florida.
