The Florida Highway Patrol reports that Brett Allen Diekman, 32, of Stuart, Florida was critically injured Sunday evening when he failed to slow in time to avoid the vehicle ahead of him. Diekman was not wearing a helmet.
The motorcyclist was traveling southbound on Ocean Drive in St. Lucie County when he had to lay his motorcycle down on its left side to avoid hitting Thomas A. Daly’s 2003 SUV which he was following. Diekman was thrown off the bike, which continued southbound, striking the SUV, a construction barrel, and later a power line tube.
Daly did not suffer any injuries. Diekman was flown to Lawnwood Medical Center.
We at DeBerard Injury attorney extend our best wishes and sympathies to all those touched by this tragic accident.
