Lu Haddeman was a passenger on George A. Tacott's motorcycle on U.S 41 when a Chrysler, which was traveling west on Lake Lindsey Road, hit the left side of their southbound motorcycle, reports say. The intersection has a stop sign on Lake Lindsey Road, but the motorcycle did not have a stop sign on U.S. 41. The collision threw Haddeman and Tacott from the motorcycle. Both were taken to Bayonet Point Hospital, where Haddeman died of her injuries. Tacott remains in serious condition, officials said.
After hitting the motorcycle, the Chrysler collided head-on with an eastbound 2003 Chevy Tahoe, driven by Christine V. Zoucha of Brooksville, troopers said.
In the summer months, there will be more motorcycle on the road enjoying the Florida summer. It is important that car drivers keep a lookout for motorcyclists--especially at intersections and while changing lanes. A few extra seconds could save a motorcyclist's life.
