Fatal motorcycle crash closes eastbound Interstate 4 at Osceola Parkway for …

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The Florida Highway Patrol says the eastbound lanes of Interstate 4 have reopened following a fatal motorcycle crash near Mile Marker 67.

The crash happened Tuesday morning at Osceola Parkway, near the Orange and Osceola county line. Troopers say a passenger vehicle apparently ran over a piece of tire tread in the road, which then struck the motorcycle driver. He was knocked off the bike and run over by a passing vehicle. That vehicle didn’t stop and troopers are looking for the driver.

The interstate was closed for several hours, reopening shortly before 11 a.m.

The name of the 47-year-old motorcycle driver hasn’t been released.

Road-rage fatality? I-4 crash may have been intentional

Police say road rage may have prompted the fatal crash that led to the closure of all lanes of I-4 eastbound at Orange Blossom Trail Road.

9:35 a.m. EDT, August 22, 2013

Orlando police say one vehicle ran another off Interstate 4, causing a crash that killed one person and shut down eastbound lanes of the highway at Orange Blossom Trail, according to preliminary reports.

“This crash allegedly occurred as the vehicle that crashed was possibly run off the road by an unknown gold colored car that left the scene,” Orlando Police Sgt. Jim Young said in an email. “There may be damage on that car.”

The Florida Highway Patrol said the crash happened at 6:34 a.m. Two eastbound lanes of I-4 eastbound reopened after 8 a.m.

About five Orlando Police Department patrol cars are on the highway investigating.

No other details were released. This is a developing story. Check back later for updates.

Florida’s Turnpike blocked near Interstate 4 due to deadly crash – FOX 35 News …

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

Northbound lanes of Florida’s Turnpike were closed in Orange County for most of Wednesday afternoon, due to a deadly crash.

Orange County Fire Rescue responded to an accident involving a pickup truck and a minivan just before noon. 

Witnesses said they saw the minivan going in reverse in the middle lane of the turnpike, according to troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol.  The minivan was struck by the pickup truck and erupted into flames.

When troopers showed up, it was a fire mess.  The driver of the van was trapped inside his vehicle and died before crews could put out the fire. His identity has not been released.

The driver of the pick up truck was hurt and taken to the hospital, but we’re told he has non life-threatening injuries.

Virginia Bus Crash Verdict: Driver Kin Yiu Cheung Convicted For Conduct ‘So …

BOWLING GREEN, Va. — Several survivors of a deadly bus crash in Virginia last year told a judge Thursday of their harrowing early-morning ride, describing how they swerved from side to side and changed speeds erratically before careening off an interstate highway.

After the testimony, a judge convicted Kin Yiu Cheung of four counts of involuntary manslaughter in the crash that killed four and injured dozens along Interstate 95. The witnesses said the erratic driving occurred for up to an hour as Cheung drank coffee and Red Bull energy drinks. Finally, they said, he nodded off at the wheel and lost control of the low-fare Sky Express bus.

“It was almost as if you’re on a roller-coaster ride,” passenger Karrica Finch said.

She said dozing passengers awakened by the vibration of the bus wheels on the highway shoulder’s rumble strips started screaming when they saw the driver slumped over.

“I could hear people yelling, `He’s dead!’ and `We’re going to die! We’re going to die!’” Finch said.

Passenger Andrew Jennings said the crash “was like a nightmare,” and LiDenne Cromartie testified that she was helping others out of the overturned bus when she encountered Cheung.

“He said, `I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I feel asleep,’” Cromartie said.

Several witnesses also said Cheung acted angrily toward passengers, chastising and nearly leaving behind two women who got off the bus without his permission to use the restroom during a brief stop.

Caroline County Circuit Judge Joseph Ellis told Cheung that his conduct was “so gross and wanton,” he had no choice but to find him guilty. Cheung, who listened to the trial through an interpreter, was taken to jail to await his Jan. 23 sentencing. He faces up to 40 years.

The crash survivors were among 15 witnesses for the prosecution. Virginia State Trooper Andrea N. Vowell, who said the bus was still rocking when she arrived at the scene about 30 miles north of Richmond, testified that Cheung nodded when she asked whether he had fallen asleep at the wheel.

Cheung also wrote a statement saying: “Maybe I feeling tired and sleepy time.”

Shirley Dai, who like Cheung speaks Mandarin, said she was riding in the front row when she heard the driver complaining on his cell phone that he doesn’t get enough rest.

But defense attorney Taylor Stone noted that Cheung told investigators that he had slept from about noon until 6 p.m. on May 31, 2011, before starting the bus trip from Greensboro, N.C., to New York at about 11 p.m. He argued that while Cheung acknowledges falling asleep at the wheel, the crash was a “horrendous accident” and not a case of criminal negligence.

Commonwealth’s Attorney Tony Spencer, however, said it was clear from the testimony that Cheung knew for at least an hour that he was having trouble staying alert. Pointing at the defendant, Spencer said: “That man had a legal duty of care to those passengers, and that’s a factor in this case.”

Stone called no witnesses, and Cheung did not testify.

Last week, prosecutors dropped four manslaughter counts against bus dispatcher Zhao Jian Chen. The dispatcher was charged after prosecutors say he told Cheung to press on after the New York man said he was too tired, but officials said new evidence called that claim into question.

The National Transportation Safety Board said in July that driver fatigue and other factors likely caused the crash. The board found that Cheung had limited opportunities for quality sleep in the days leading up to the accident, and that ineffective government oversight allowed the Charlotte, N.C.-based company to operate despite various safety violations.

The board said Transportation Department officials were in the process of shutting down Sky Express at the time of the crash but had given the company an extra 10 days to appeal an unsatisfactory safety rating. Without the extension, Sky Express would have ceased operations the weekend before the crash.

In June, government safety officials shut down more than two dozen similar curbside bus operations for safety violations in the largest single federal crackdown on the industry.

PETA wants memorial where fish died in Irvine car crash

RoadsideMemorial_fish_Irvine1 (1)
On behalf of a leading animal rights group, an Irvine woman is asking the city to erect a memorial at the street corner where 1,600 pounds of live fish died this month when a container truck was involved in a three-vehicle crash.

Dina Kourda, a volunteer with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, wrote to the Irvine Public Works Department to request that a sign be placed at the intersection of Walnut and Yale avenues to honor the lives of the fish — believed to be saltwater bass — lost in the accident.

The fish, the Orange County Register reported, were being hauled to a Ranch 99 Market, an Asian supermarket.

The fish had been stored in large tanks that cracked open as a
result of the Oct. 11 accident. When firefighters opened the back of the
truck, some fish flopped out, and others had already died. None of the people involved in the accident were seriously injured.

“Although such signs are traditionally reserved for human fatalities, I hope you’ll make an exception because of the enormous suffering involved in this case, in order to remind drivers that all animals – whether they’re humans, basset hounds or bass–value their lives and feel pain,” Kourda wrote.

Ashley Byrne, a spokeswoman for PETA, said the organization had
called for memorials for other types of animals such as cows and pigs
before, but this was the first time the group has called for a fish
remembrance.

She said it’s appropriate.

“Hundreds of fish perished in this accident, suffocating slowly on the roadway,” she said.

I-4 commuters test newly resurfaced Fairbanks curve

ORLANDO – 

Monday morning commuters on I-4 will be the first to get a look at the new and improved Fairbanks curve in Orange County.

Crews finished the latest construction Sunday night on the problem area of the interstate, hoping to make the infamous curve safer and less prone to crashes, especially during wet weather.

The surface looked extremely smooth, and the striping and reflectors were bright along the newly resurfaced Fairbanks curve.

But is it safer?

The curve is now covered in asphalt instead of the previous concrete paving. The Florida Department of Transportation hopes the new surface will absorb water better and reduce the number of crashes on that section of the interstate.

For years, the Fairbanks curve has been a known hotspot for accidents and jackknifed tractor trailers, and according to the Florida Highway Patrol, the number of crashes had seen dramatic increases when the weather was wet.

When Tropical Storm Debby crossed Florida in June, there were more than 40 crashes at the curve in just one weekend.

FDOT estimated the construction to cost about $378,000, and even though it took crews longer than expected to finish the project, they stayed within that budget.

Transportation officials added this is only a temporary fix to the Fairbanks curve. Ultimately, that part of I-4 is set to be redesigned.
