UPDATE: Lakeland Man Dies After Motorcycle Accident
PCSO Press Release:
On March 6, 2019 around 3 p.m., a deadly crash involving a motorcycle and three vehicles shut down a portion of Highway 92 in Lakeland in front of Santa Fe High School for more than three hours.
The driver of the motorcycle, 25 year old Jose’ Noe’ Aguilar Jr., of Lakeland, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.
A preliminary investigation suggests Aguilar was traveling at a high rate of speed and weaving in and out of traffic while heading west on Highway 92. He struck the driver’s side mirror of a Mustang, lost control and dropped the motorcycle on its side. It then slid into the left rear of a truck that was stopped in traffic in the inside lane. After striking the truck, the motorcycle continued sliding and hit an SUV stopped in the median.
Aguilar was wearing the appropriate safety gear. PCFR responded and attempted lifesaving efforts. There were no other injuries.
This is the third traffic fatality involving a motorcycle that has occurred in Polk County in the last few weeks.
