LAKE COUNTY, Fla. - A 61-year-old motorcyclist is dead after he was caught in a chain-reaction crash with five other cars at a toll plaza on Florida’s Turnpike Saturday afternoon, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
David Kibble, of Tennessee, died at Leesburg Regional Medical Center after a Ford pickup driven by Christopher Garner, 23 of Texas, failed to slow down while approaching the toll plaza at mile marker 288 in Lake County, troopers said.
Garner rear-ended the cars, the crash report says, because he failed to stop while approaching stop-and-go traffic.
None of the other drivers involved in the crash were injured, according to the crash report.
Troopers said the crash remains under investigation and charges are pending.
