Motorcyclist dies from injuries


300-SAPD-CAR-HCNA twenty-year-old St Augustine Beach resident has died from injuries sustained yesterday afternoon when the motorcycle he was operating struck a car turning into his path on South Ponce de Leon Boulevard.

Kyle Good, and his friend Samantha Bartosch of St. Augustine, were southbound on US-1 around 3:38 p.m. when a white mid-size sedan pulled onto the highway from Daniels Street overturning the motorcycle.

“Kyle Good died from his injuries last evening,” Mark Samson, spokesman for the St Augustine Police Department told reporters. “Samantha Bartosch remains in serious but stable condition.”

St Johns County Fire-Rescue responded to the scene, stabilized the patients for air ambulance transportation to the trauma unit at Orange Park Medical Center with “severe injuries”.

The investigation is continuing into what caused the crash, Samson reported. There is no word on charges at this time, or if alcohol contributed to the crash. Bartosch was wearing a helmet, according to Samson — Good was not.
