Tampa Motorcyclist Killed in Crash

Chris Russo Aug 17, 2010

Mark Graves, 43, was driving his 2010 Harley DAvidson motorcycle when he was struck and killed by a pickup truck.  Graves was driving west on Busch Boulevard near Arrawana Avenue at apprximately 4:30 p.m.  George Gunter, 74, was driving east in a 2006 Ford pickup truck.  Gunter appears to have made a left turn in front of Graves and failed to yield.  Graves appears to have attempted to avoid the accident by hitting the brakes but still struck the passenger side of Gunter's pickup truck.  Graves was pronounced dead at the scene.  Graves was not wearing a helmet.  Gunter did not appear to be injured.  This car/motorcycle accident is still under investigation.

Cars and motorcycles unfortunately strike each other on our roadways.  These accidents frequently involve more serious injury or death to the motorcyclist but not the driver of the car or truck.  In this case, it appears that the pickup truck was at fault for the accident and that Graves suffered a wrongful death.  If you or a loved one has any questions regarding this accident or any other accident involving personal injury or death, please contact a Central Florida personal injury or wrongful death attorney with Moody Law.  One of our Central Florida personal injury or wrongful death attorneys can assist you with your questions or any process that is necessary such as setting up a probate and ultimately making a liability claim.  There are times where the only asset in the probate estate is the liability claim against the at-fault driver/owner.  A consultation with one of our Central Florida personal injury or wrongful death attorneys is free.
