DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - At least three motorcyclists have died in wrecks as Daytona Beach’s Bike Week rides in on its last day of the event.
The victim in the latest deadly crash was a 27-year-old that made the trip down to central Florida from North Dakota.
According to Florida Highway Patrol troopers, the man crossed the center line on State Road 40 and slammed head-on into an oncoming car.
Bike Week saw several other fatal crashes, including a drunk driver that plowed into a group of pedestrians.
On Saturday night, a motorcyclist was rushed to Halifax Medical center following a fiery crash on the Interstate 4 eastbound in DeLand that had the interstate shut down for several hours.
And while the event has filled Daytona Beach with traffic delays, it’s not stopping riders from making one last trip down Main Street this year.
“It’s been great. I have no complaints about it. I’ll be back next year,” tourist David Gray said.
In the past week, thousands of riders have poured into Daytona Beach for the annual event, which pumps $75 million into the local economy.
