Panama City Beach, FL—Just after Florida Governor Charlie Crist deemed the month of May to be Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, four people suffered serious injuries in a motorcycle collision. The bike crash occurred in Panama City Beach, Florida early Sunday, May 2, 2010, according to information provided by NewsHerald.com.
Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) troopers reported a traffic accident involving two motorcycles occurred at approximately 12:30 a.m. Motorcycle driver David S. Cross, 38, was allegedly northbound on a roadway near Bonita Street when he attempted to pull into Thomas Drive. Unfortunately, he was unsuccessful in doing so. An eastbound motorcycle operated by Corey A. Thompson was traveling on Thomas Drive and consequently smashed into Cross’ northbound bike.
Emergency medical services (EMS) personnel were seemingly dispatched to the scene of the motorcycle wreck to rush the injured to area hospitals for treatment. Cross was taken to Bay Medical Center in serious condition. Thompson was also transported to Bay Medical Center but listed in critical condition. A passenger riding on Cross’ motorcycle, 24-year-old Laura Allen, suffered critical injuries and was taken to Gulf Coast Medical Center. Thompson’s bike passenger, 30-year-old Shawna Nicole Kelsey, was taken to Gulf Coast where she was listed in serious condition.
None of the motorcycle accident victims were wearing helmets at the time. Investigations into the injurious motorcycle collision are expected to be underway.
