Motorcycle Accident Claims One Life

A motorcycle accident took the life of one last weekend near Oakstead.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the victim, 57-year-old John Lauer, was riding his Yamaha motorcycle on Oakstead Boulevard when a Toyota car swerved into Lauer's lane and struck him. When Lauer saw what was happening, he quickly tried to lay down his bicycle to avoid the crash. When the car failed to return to its lane, it hit Lauer and the bike, and then stopped directly on top of the victim.

Lauer was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency medical technicians.

Since the driver "failed to drive within a single (lane)," officers are placing all of the blame on the driver. The FHP has not yet released the charges against the driver in this motorcycle accident.
