Bunnell, FL – A motorcyclist and his passenger were critically injured after a man driving a Chevy Tahoe tried to pull into a driveway before their motorcycle had completely passed him on U.S. 1 near County Road 13 in Bunnell.
At around 5:10 PM on Friday, 25-year-old Tyler Patrick Anderson, of Palm Coast, was stopped facing northbound on U.S. 1 in the left turning lane waiting to turn into a private driveway. 52-year-old William Robert Westervelt, of Bunnell, and 48-year-old Kimberly Dawn Boyer, of Palm Coast, were traveling southbound on U.S. 1 when Anderson pulled out into the path of their Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
The left front end of the Tahoe struck the left rear end of the motorcycle. The Tahoe came to a stop off U.S. 1 on the west grassy shoulder and the motorcycle made a controlled stop in a parking lot adjacent to the driveway.
Both Westervelt and Boyer were taken to Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach with critical injuries. Anderson suffered no injuries, according to the Florida Highway Patrol’s (FHP) crash report.
FHP says that alcohol was not a factor for any of the parties involved. Anderson faces charges of failing to yield while making a left turn.
