A Palm Coast teen was critically injured in a motorcycle wreck at the intersection of Lakeview Boulevard and Laramie Drive in north Palm Coast just after noon today.


Flagler County Fire Flight, the county’s emergency helicopter, evacuated the teen to Halifax hospital in Daytona Beach.

The teen, whose identity was not yet available, was riding in a group of three motorcycles, going north on Lakeview, the road that a little further south turns into Belle Terre Parkway (at Matanzas Woods Parkway). The teen was making a right turn onto Laramie. “He failed to negotiate the curve,” a Florida Highway Patrol investigator at the scene said.

The motorcycle scraped off the pavement at the intersection, scattering various pieces along the way, and overturned on the grassy shoulder and into the ditch, where the victim was ejected and left face down in ankle-deep water. According to the people he was riding with, he was not wearing a helmet, the FHP trooper said. No other vehicles were involved.

The Palm Coast Fire Police reduced Lakeview Boulevard to a single lane as the investigation was conducted. The Palm Coast Fire Department and Flagler County Fire Rescue responded, and Roger’s Towing removed the motorcycle. The road was reopened to normal traffic at 2 p.m.

    Pretty sure this guy went right up the middle line full traffic on belle terre yesterday in.

      This was up on Lakeview in a quiet residential section, nowhere near Belle Terre.

        I’ve lived in Matanzas woods for 12 years Flagler county for over 25 years. I know the proximity of belle terre to Lakeview parkway. For one that area is no longer quiet. Two, my previous comment was in reference to an earlier observation from the day before the accident. The comment was supposed to say “right up the dotted lines while cars traveled south in both lanes”.

          Nope…I was working right in front of his house…saw him and his 2friends hanging out on the driveway rubbing off the bikes…I saw them take off and as a bike rider I am,I could see he had absolutely no experience riding a bike… No experience and no helmet????? I don’t get it!!!!! That was his first ride of the day,he didn’t go on belle terre earlier…..

            Are you guys at least trying to read the comment? No, the earlier sighting was not the same day it was on a previous occasion like the day before.

        There’s nothing quiet about anything north of Palm Coast Parkway anymore, particularly Laramie Dr. That’s become little more than a cut-through to miss the light at Lakeview/Belle Terre and Matanzas Woods Blvd. The speed limit in the whole neighborhood is 30mph, but you’d never know that applied to Laramie or Lakeview. People treat it like their own personal racecourse.

        It gets old, particularly when the neighborhood can practically trip over Code Enforcement on a given street in the L section, but one is hard-pressed to see a police patrol.

    I hope that he gets better I feel that he should have had a helmet on and not driving crazy.
