MELBOURNE, Florida — The Florida Highway Patrol is reporting that two people have died as a result of injuries they sustained in a crash involving a motorcycle and a bicycle that occurred on US-192 near the intersection of Knotty Pine Road in Melbourne, Florida around 6:15 p.m. on Saturday.

A 25-year-old Palm Bay, Florida man was riding a 2001 Suziki motorcycle westbound on US-192 in the inside lane.  Meanwhile, 50-year-old Timothy Robinson of West Melbourne, Florida was attempting to cross westbound US-192 on a bicycle from the north to the south side of the road.

According to FHP, the bicycle traveled into the direct path of the motorcycle.  The front of the motorcycle struck then the bicycle, causing both riders to be ejected.

While the motorcyclist was laying in the inside westbound lane of US-192 following the accident, an unknown pickup truck ran over him and left the scene.  

The motorcyclist, who was not wearing a helmet, died at the scene and Robinson was transported to Holmes Regional Medical Center as a trauma patient.

The Florida Highway Patrol is asking anyone with any information about the pickup truck to contact authorities.

  • RIP Quinn. So sad we have to have people make comments like that specially about a person who touched so many people in a positive way. Meanwhile karma is owning your hateful judging self Anonymous ..

  • Hide behind that anonymous comment faggot. He was a better man than you will ever amount to and you know it. Go kill yourself.

  • to anonymous~Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor? ~james 4:11-12Careful what you say. RIP Quinn <3
