A recent high school graduate was killed in a motorcycle accident in central Florida just days before Christmas when a woman made an illegal left turn in front of the cyclist, causing the fatal collision. The accident occurred on Monday, December 22nd, at 2:09 p.m. The victim has been identified as Shayne Breen, 18, who graduated from high school just this year. The stepfather of the victim, Lance Coleman, reported that Breen was just licensed to ride the motorcycle when the crash happened.
The collision was caused by a 43 year old Sebring, Florida resident who turned left in front of Breen as he was traveling south along U.S. 27 in the Avon Park, Florida area. Breen was thrown off the motorcycle after striking the right rear side of the woman's Toyota Corolla. Although the crash was fatal for 18 year old Breen, the woman, identified as Ruth Ann Lacombe, did not suffer any injuries and was only cited by police for making an illegal left turn in front of oncoming traffic.
