Posted in Motorcycle Accidents on May 24, 2017
A junior at the University of Central Florida (UCF) suffered severe injuries in a motorcycle accident on the State road 408 in Orlando. As reported in the Orlando Sentinel, Radley Gillis, age 21, was riding home from work on his bike. His friend, Jake Adler, age 20, was driving behind him in his truck when Gillis’ motorcycle abruptly skidded off the side of the road.
According to troopers, the accident took place close to a curve in the road, where Gillis did not complete the turn, which caused him to crash into a guardrail. There were no other parties involved in the accident. Gillis was transported to the hospital with serious injuries. His condition was described as critical and unstable.
Gillis has undergone 11 surgeries, almost one each day since his admission to Orlando Regional Medical Center. He received a great deal of support from his parents and the UCF community, which managed to raise over $100,000 in just days to help with the cost of his treatment.
While many motorcycle accidents are not due to the fault of anyone, many such incidents often occur due to the negligence of another motorist.
