1 killed in Florida after motorcycle accident on U.S. 1

During the warm spring and summer months of the year, it's normal for motorcyclists to be on the roads. While most drivers are courteous to motorcyclists, not all monitor the roads well enough and could be putting motorcyclists at risk due to unsafe driving habits. In cases where a driver hasn't noticed a motorcyclist, one wrong move could prove to be fatal.

This accident in Florida is one that could have been prevented, and it's drawing attention. In Florida, U-turns are legal, unlike in several other states. When you make a U-turn, you need to be wary of those behind and in front of you, but you also need to monitor oncoming lanes of traffic in the opposite direction. With so much going on, it can be tricky for drivers to make a U-turn safely, as this accident showed.

According to an article from April 2, it was around 2:00 p.m., when The Florida Highway Patrol was notified about an accident that had taken place on U.S. 1. The accident involved a 66-year-old man who was riding his motorcycle and a 39-year-old man in a truck.

The 39-year-old man decided to make a U-turn on the highway, which is completely legal in the state, but he failed to leave enough space for the oncoming motorcyclist. As he pulled out, the motorcyclist slammed into the vehicle and was thrown from the motorcycle.

Though the man was taken to the hospital following the accident, he did not survive the accident. Police are now investigating the crash to determine an exact cause.
