Motorcyclist, 26, Dead After Rear-Ending Pickup At High Speed

February 25, 2024

A 26-year old motorcyclist from Escambia County was killed when he collided with a pickup truck at a high rate of speed Friday night on I-110 in Pensacola.

The crash happened on I-110 northbound just north of Cervantes Street about 8:15 p.m.

The Florida Highway Patrol said the motorcycle was traveling at “high rate of speed” when it rear-ended a pickup truck driven by a 48-year old Pensacola man. The pickup truck driver was not injured.

    Response to Mack and Shay: Your comment is well made. We responsible motorcyclists call those idiots “squids.” They are a minority still, examples of Natural Selection waiting to happen.

    My comment: Use an appropriately narrow brush. The leading cause of motorcycle fatalities, nationally, is a car or truck making a left turn across a motorcyclist’s right of way.

    There are two who race north on Pine Forest rd, every early evenings weekdays.

    My wife and I have been close to being hit by motorcyclists traveling at a high rate of speed. EX: I-10 between Hwy 29 and Pine Forest Rd – just last week a cyclist was using the center lane line as his right of way. According to the Florida law it is illegal to “operate a motorcycle between lanes of traffic or between adjacent lines or rows of vehicles.” Move to California if you must travel like that. Driving the 70mph speed limit on I-10 and cyclists flying around us and out of sight within 10 seconds. That is extremely dangerous to everyone on the road.

    I see bumper stickers constantly “WATCH OUT FOR MOTORCYLES”. You ain’t lying because they don’t watch out for us. Stop and wide open is how they travel.

    Prayers to all involved !

    Our roads have become a free-for-all where motorcyclists pop wheelies, race, and are a menace to other drivers. Let’s bring our FHP back from the border and put them on the streets where they belong!
