Dania, Florida – A Hollywood man riding a motorcycle was killed early Friday morning in a hit and run motor vehicle accident police are describing as “bizarre”.
30 year old Larry Grampa was riding his motorcycle at approximately 2 a.m. on I-95 near Griffin Road in Dania Beach, Florida when he ran into a vehicle and was sent flying off his red Suziki, Florida Highway Patrol officials said.
Grampa, who had initially suffered minor injuries when he was thrown to the shoulder on the side of I-95, was able to walk over to his motorcycle in the center lane of I-95. That’s when the other car struck him.
Florida Highway Patrol is now searching for the other vehicle involved.
Motorcycle riders involved in an accident are extremely vulnerable to serious injury and death as their bikes provide them little or no protection. They are also more easily lost in the blind spot of larger motor vehicles due to their size. This type of tragedy can be avoided but riders need to practice defensive driving and other motorists must afford motorcycles the same level of respect they give to passenger cars.
