A collision between a motorcycle and car on Sunday afternoon proved deadly for the motorcycle rider, 75-year-old Thomas Valley of Ormond Beach.
According to Florida Highway Patrol, the crash happened around 3:20 in the afternoon, on Country Road 455 and Cavallo Drive. Valley was headed south on his 2013 Honda motorcycle. Richard Powell, 40, was moving north in a 2012 Toyota Corrolla. For unknown reasons, Powell swerved to the right, then overcorrected into the southbound lanes, striking Valley’s motorcycle head-on. Valley was ejected from his bike, and later pronounced dead at the scene.
