EUSTIS, Fla. – A man is dead after a crash involving three motorcycles along a Lake County road, the Florida Highway Patrol said Sunday.
A trooper arrived at the site of the crash, which occurred at the intersection of County Road 44A and Thrill Hill Road, near Eustis at 11:45 a.m.
Troopers say the three motorcycles were traveling east on CR-44A as a group when one rear-ended the other, sending him into the third motorcycle.
Travis Detrick, 37, died as a result of that collision.
The other two motorcyclists were transported to Central Florida Regional Medical Center with minor injuries, according to the crash report.
Neighbors say many drivers ignore the speed limit on this county road, leading to several wrecks.
“They’re just screaming by, I mean like a drag strip, they’re just moving,” said Johnny McDowell, who lives nearby. “It’s 45 through here and they’re doing about 60 when they come up over the hill.”
