Crash On 14th St W In Bradenton Leaves Motorcyclist Dead and 8-Year Old Passenger In Serious Condition

BRADENTON – According to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol one person has died and another is in serious condition after a crash on 14th Street West Friday afternoon.

The deadly crash happened as a 40-year-old man from Bradenton was riding a Harley Davidson Motorcycle southbound on 14th Street West approaching the intersection with 58th Avenue West, with an 8-year-old boy riding as a passenger.

As the motorcyclist was traveling south, a 71-year-old man from Bradenton was driving a sedan heading north on 14th Street West,  approaching the intersection with 58th Avenue West from the opposite side of the oncoming motorcyclist.

At 1:32 PM the driver of the car attempted to make a left turn from 14th Street West into a parking lot located at 5802 14th Street West, and failed to yield to the oncoming motorcyclist riding the Harley Davidson, violating the motorcyclist’s right-of-way and giving the rider no time to react.

The motorcycle crashed into the front section of the right side of the car at speed. The force of the collision threw the rider from the motorcycle.

Manatee County Emergency Medical Services responded to the crash and pronounced the motorcyclist deceased at the scene. The 8-year-old boy was seriously injured in the crash and was flown to a local trauma hospital for emergency treatment.

The 71-year-old man who drove the sedan was also seriously injured in the crash.
