Motorcycle Driver Escapes Serious Injury After Catastrophic Collision

SPRING HILL – The driver of the three-wheeled motorcycle pictured below is lucky to be alive after he was crushed between two vehicles in a crash on Deltona Blvd.

Around 1:30 p.m. Fire Rescue responded to the intersection of Deltona Blvd and Abeline Road, where they discovered the nearly unrecognizable motorcycle and feared the worst. Surprisingly, the driver barely had a scratch and was up walking around after the collision.

The driver told RNRF that he was propelled on top of the SUV and believes the size of the bike probably saved his life.

  • I live in Michigan, (though I’m a true Floridian) and there are laws here against TWD, and smoking in your car if there are children (under 18 yrs old) present. Four years ago, voters repealed the helmet law for motorcyclist, and people are now dying in motorcycle accidents that they would have survived, if they were wearing a helmet, or I should say, a good helmet like a Bell helmet. A long time ago, I worked the parts counter in a Harley shop, and we had a sign on the wall that said, ” If you have a $10.00 head, wear a $10.00 helmet.” We sold a lot of $10.00 helmets! I used to ride a bike on US-19 between Holiday and Hudson a lot, but back then, there were no cell phones, no computers, and no internet. Even then though, I wore a day-glow orange shirt to make myself more visible to motorists. You couldn’t pay me enough money to get me to ride on the roads today!

  • Im guessing the jackass that hit him was too busy texting to see him. POS should be tossed in jail for a very long time after being given a very serious beating.

  • It seems that whatever the topic or new item being discussed……………Bethy wants an argument.

    Thursday, 9 March 2017, 9:49 am
    • First , Sassy, nobody on here ever ‘discusses’ anything………people are simply passing judgements based on a mug shot, a news story or some other small tidbit of information. It essentially becomes Slanderfest……

      Thursday, 9 March 2017, 3:26 pm
  • Bethy, Your world must be depressing if you don’t believe there is a god and our souls are not eternal. Ill pray for you to have a better understanding. I believe God was with some of the others who passed as well.

    Thursday, 9 March 2017, 1:21 am
    • Perhaps bethy doesn’t need an imaginary friend

  • I ride a Spyder identical to this one, and am glad this person is OK. Spyder Ryders tend to be safety conscience and I only wish others would take that second look and see that they aren’t the only one one the road. Too many people watching out for themselves and not taking a second look to see motorcycles and trikes.

  • We are glad that he was ok, We came up on the scene shortly before the Fire Truck left. We looked at the car and the bike and was Hoping that the person was ok, and no one was riding on the back of the bike. Just scary, how people just don’t pay attention. The driver of the car could either have been texting and driving, not paying attention to that the light was red , Maybe no brakes or a senior? I am just very glad that the motorcyclist was not killed and hopefully not hurt to bad.

    Wednesday, 8 March 2017, 7:40 pm
    • That’s right throw the seniors under the bus. Just yesterday I saw a young lady texting going up 50. unbelieveable

  • I knew I liked you bethy! What can I say, it’s just not logical.

    Wednesday, 8 March 2017, 7:29 pm
  • God rides a motorcycle. That rider is very lucky, and he and CanAm will both have a great story to tell. Thank God nobody was seriously hurt, and the lawyers are surely already on it. God bless those who ride outside of the cage.

  • glad to hear the man escaped with his life. our system is too soft on reckless drivers. there needs to be a mandatory revocation for at least a year for any one caught recklessly driving and mandatory classes and if the person gets caught driving with out a license stemming from such an incident it should be a felony with a mandatory minimum. Call me harsh but people just dont care and drive with disregard for others.

    The penalties are a joke. Its all about money. Safety of our families and loved ones is of little concern to the current system in place. I do no support or hold sympathy for people that treat driving like its a game. Just drive these days and look at all the people buried in their cell phones checking facebook to playing video games instead of focusing on the road. Its ridiculous. Most of them couldnt drive decent in the first place and now they distract themselves further. Its a bigger gamble every day driving on these roads.

  • Thank God …He was With The Motorcycle Driver

  • That picture needs to be sent to Can Am, good PR/Lessons learned!

    • The rear drive wheel is on a swing arm that pivots with shock absorbers. When he was hit from behind the pivot went straight up, surely past the breaking point, and catapulted him up, up, and away. Lucky design benefit, good for him.

      Thursday, 9 March 2017, 1:39 pm
  • Angels were with the motorcyclist. Wow.

    Wednesday, 8 March 2017, 3:52 pm
    • Wait a minute…….’Unbelieveable’ just said that God was with the cyclist……and now you’re saying it was Angels ………which is it? God or the Angels. I’m willing to bet that it was just the luck of the draw and not any of this religious CRAP !!!

      • Bethy…you are SO FILL OF B.S. Go let that hot air out of your stupid head…then bury it in the sand and stay there.

        Thursday, 9 March 2017, 3:40 pm
  • Glad the bike rider is ok and no other bad injuries.I drove by and it must have been right after it happened.I thought the worse when I saw that motorcycle.Car was probably in a hurry to get home back in Timber Pines and not paying attention

  • Driver’s license not diver’s license.

    Wednesday, 8 March 2017, 3:03 pm
  • Driver inattention & stupidity once again!!!!! God was with the motorcyclist today. Thank goodness he was propelled onto suv. Some people are wasting the gift of sight & brains. They should NOT have a diver’s license!!!!

    • Funny how ‘God’ seemed to be with the motorcyclist …as you say, but decided to say piss on the other two motorcyclists that were killed in Crystal River the other day. God said piss on the 30 yr old that was found dead in Alachua county , God said piss on the black dude that was robbed and killed on Twigg st……and then God said piss on the woman that was beaten and robbed behind a super market at Mariner and Northcliffe Blvd. Now I ask you……..why was God with THIS individual and not the others? I’m sure it was just the religious crap people tend to regurgitate for lack of anything else to say………..This ‘God’ delusion is a mind-made construct and a world wide mental pathology.

      Wednesday, 8 March 2017, 5:53 pm
      • Wow, negative much? Everyone has their day and time, and yes God decides that, doesn’t matter age, race, religion, when it’s your time, it’s your time. And while I ride, I pray God keeps me safe, along with my husband who also rides…projecting negativity does nothing but bring down everyone around you. Bad things happen to good people, but praying makes people feel better. It’s your right to not believe, but it is also the other persons right to believe that God was watching over the rider….

        • bethy your an idiot HELL awaits you since you dont belive in god

          Wednesday, 8 March 2017, 8:14 pm
          • I……………am………….trembling…………NOT!

            Wednesday, 8 March 2017, 9:14 pm
          • Leave Bethy alone. The only hell there is, is the one we are all living in. If you believe in a God who punishes non-believers to a place you call hell, you are in for a rude awakening when your time comes to leave. Judgemental people like you, are the reason the world is in the shitty shape it’s in. You’re no better than the Taliban and Isis, because you think your God is the only true God. Btw, why did you write hell in upper case, and didn’t God? Exactly who do you worship anyway?

          • The reply I just posted to “yournightmare” applies to you also! Take your holier-than-thou attitude and move to Afghanistan.

            Tuesday, 14 March 2017, 12:19 am
      • I’m with bethy, how do we know any victim in the crash believed in a god? There are over 800 religions in the world, some have gods, some don’t

        Perhaps you shouldn’t cast your faith ( believing in something you can’t prove, by definition) on anyone but yourself

        Wednesday, 8 March 2017, 8:16 pm
        • I’m with Jill, God will decide when he takes you whether you believe or don’t.

          Wednesday, 8 March 2017, 9:06 pm
          • God doesn’t decide when you leave, you do.

            Tuesday, 14 March 2017, 12:28 am
        • Im an atheist and I ride the same motorcycle, Yet hope you people who be leave in a god whatever god it may be,,,, that you have enough sense to pull your head out of your long enough to make sure you don’t kill a motorcyclist

          Friday, 10 March 2017, 5:34 am
      • A Black dude was robbed and killed on Twigg st.? Say it ain’t so…Please…God Bless.

        Wednesday, 8 March 2017, 8:41 pm
      • Your God seems especially angry

        Thursday, 9 March 2017, 1:35 pm
      • It is a shame that you think this way. Your faith is being expended in a direction that will cost you eternally. God does not simply go away because you choose not to acknowledge Him. You will stand before Him, you will give an account of what you have done with the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ, and you will bow before Him on that day.

        Why not bow before Him now and receive not only Eternal Life, but a lifetime of blessing here in this life?

        Thursday, 9 March 2017, 1:58 pm
        • Oh, paleeze! If you want to preach to people, go do it in a church, where some people actually want to hear that crap.

          Tuesday, 14 March 2017, 1:50 am
      • Bethy…SHUT UP! I pray that one day SOON that you will find you NEED God and will be begging Him to spare your pathetic life and attitude. Some idiots like YOU have to find out the hard way. Don’t like what people post here…. GET OFF THIS SITE. Take your condescending elsewhere. Go find another page to troll.

      • Does the creator of everything ,have to answer to the clay, 0f what he does and doesn’t do! A DEMAND for these answers is FOOLISHNESS . You come across as a god to even suggest such a thing . I SENCE NOTHING but Bitterness from you. A heart of gratitude for your very skin IS THE ANSWER . If u would do a read of the holy book, u would find out that there is a dark side ! SATAN ! WHO HAS BLINDED THE EYES , AND EAR’S OF THE POPULOUS … THERE IS YOUR ANSWER ! REPENTence ! IS THE only WAY TO HAVE THE EYE’S OPEN ! THEN AND ONLY THEN WILL U BE ABLE TO SEE CLEARLY, and worship your creator. Hell would be a terrible place to finally find out that u were wrong , Because of your stubborn spirit ! A word to the wise ~ !
