On Tuesday evening, four riders returning home after attending the weekly “Bike Nite” at Woody’s BBQ on Flager Plaza off State Road 100 met in a terrible accident.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the gang was reaching mile marker 296 at about 10 p.m. in the north part of the county. They were all in the left-most of the three northbound lanes.
In the center lane, there was an SUV.
The four motorcyclists “collided into one another for an unexplained reason,” according to FHP. All four cyclists were thrown onto the road due to the crash.
The SUV then collided with the 29-year-old motorcyclist, who was pronounced dead on the spot, and the 22-year-old Ninjatay21.
The other two motorcyclists were brought to AdventHealth Palm Coast with injuries that were not life-threatening.
The SUV’s passengers, a 48-year-old lady driving and a 16-year-old daughter, both from Jacksonville, were unharmed.
Witnesses told investigators that the bikes were racing in and out of their lane before the incident.
