The Fran Haasch Law Group

Virgil Wright, 66, and his wife, Sharon, 64, of Decatur, Ill., were injured when their motorcycle crashed into a vehicle that pulled in front of them, said Sgt. Kim Montes, FHP spokeswoman.

The Wrights were eastbound on Old Daytona Road when a Mini Cooper driven by Christopher Picklo, 29, of New Smyrna Beach, who was westbound, turned left into their path at the intersection of Garfield Avenue at 11:30 a.m., Montes said. The motorcycle struck the front right part of Picklo’s car, troopers said.

Virgil Wright was airlifted to Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach in critical condition while Sharon Wright was taken by EVAC ambulance in serious condition to Halifax, Montes said. Virgil Wright and his wife were not wearing helmets, Montes said.

Picklo suffered minor injuries, Montes said. The crash remains under investigation and charges are pending, Montes said.
