UPDATE: (8-10-19) Daytona Beach Police Department is identifying the rider as 25-year-old Jarrett R.Henderson. Reports say that Henderson was spotted on his Honda CBR 1000 by a DBPD officer working a stationary detail at Derbyshire Park. That officer issued a safety BOLO (Be On The Lookout) to other officers in the area about the motorcycle traveling at high speed.
Just one minute after the BOLO was issued, emergency dispatchers received a call about a traffic crash at Derbyshire and Sixth. Traffic Homicide detectives believe Henderson sped through a red light at the intersection, and collided with the right front side of a 2013 blue Ford Edge driven by
53-year-old Antoine L. Williams.
The initial investigation shows the Ford driver had the green light as he
attempted to turn north on Derbyshire from the eastbound lanes on Sixth. The impact sent the motorcycle sliding onto its side and into a parked vehicle, ejecting the rider at that point. The motorcycle also grazed the bottom of a nearby tree and a fence before coming to a stop.
Henderson was found by first responders in the front yard of 907 Derbyshire Road. It appears Henderson was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash but it was dislodged at some point after initial impact.
The driver of the Ford is reportedly not injured.
