It is sad that a person so young lost his life while riding a motorcycle. A full investigation will be completed by the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office and / or the Florida Highway Patrol since the accident involved a death.
Even a simple accident while riding a motorcycle can lead to serious personal injuries and even death. In some cases, a helmet can make a difference as to the severity of injuries. In other accidents, the benefit of a helmet may be limited due to the type of impact and trauma caused by the crash.
