A motorcyclist was ejected from his vehicle and killed over the weekend after his vehicle left an Orlando roadway and struck a curb.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers responded to the area of Silver Star Road and Princeton Street on Saturday, March 2, at around 12:02 a.m. in reference to a motorcycle accident.

According to FHP, the motorcyclist was riding a 2019 Harley Davidson westbound on Princeton Road, approaching Silver Star Road, when he failed to negotiate a left-hand curve.
