DeBary, FL – Traffic was snarled for hours Saturday night (December 1st) after an Apopka man died in a traffic accident.

It happened around 7:30 p.m. where Interstate 4 meets Dirksen Drive in DeBary, according to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.

VCSO spokesperson Andrew Gant says the man who died – 25-year-old Dylan J. Bryan – struck a Kia sedan while riding his motorcycle.

“A motorcycle headed westbound on Dirksen hit an eastbound Kia sedan that was turning left onto the I-4 ramp,” Gant added. “The traffic signal for east- and westbound traffic was green at the time, with a flashing yellow signal for traffic turning onto I-4.”

Bryan died at the scene.

Another motorcyclist suffered minor injuries while trying to avoid the accident scene, per Gant.

“The Kia driver, 80-year-old Cecilio Cruz Rivera of Orlando, was not injured,” Gant noted. “He did not display any signs of impairment.”

Neither motorcycle rider had a helmet on when the crash happened, according to deputies at the scene.

Investigators closed down traffic in the area for hours, including both I-4 ramps.

It’s not clear at this time if charges will be filed.
