63-year-old man on motorcycle fatally ejected before striking pedestrian on sidewalk

A motorcyclist who was killed after he was ejected from his vehicle in Seminole County was propelled into a pedestrian who was walking along a sidewalk.

The fatal accident took place on Sunday, February 11, at around 5:27 p.m., according to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol.

The 63-year-old man, who was from Winter Springs, was driving a 2009 Harley Davidson eastbound on Howell Branch Road, approaching Winterbrook Way.

The man failed to negotiate a curve and, as a result, ran off the right side of the roadway and collided with the curb.

The motorcyclist was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The pedestrian received minor injuries in the incident.
