Biker Killed in Hit-and-Run During Biketoberfest

Jeffrey Martin, 51, is dead after a pickup truck collided with his motorcycle near Daytona Beach on Sunday.

The Florida Highway Patrol said the motorcyclist died in the crash reported at 5:15 p.m. at San Jose Boulevard and 13th Street.

Martin was driving a 2002 Honda when he got hit by a pickup. Troopers said the Ford pickup driver ran a stop sign before he hit the biker.

Although Martin was immediately rushed to Halifax Medical Center, unfortunately, he did not survive the injuries.

The driver of the pickup is nowhere to be found. Neighbors say they saw the driver calling someone right after he hit Martin. A few minutes later, someone arrived in a white Nissan Altima, picked up the driver and then took off.

Martin’s friends and family are devastated. They were having a great time at Biketoberfest the previous night and Martin was on his way home when he got killed. They’re finding it hard to believe he’s gone.
