Biker Dies After Crashing into Mailbox
A 29-year-old Port Orange man speeding through a residential neighborhood to work just after 7 a.m. Tuesday was killed after he lost control of his motorcycle and crashed into a mailbox, South Daytona police said.
Stephen Picard was heading north on Anastasia Drive at an estimated 60 mph when he lost control of his 2005 Suzuki sports bike at Sherman Road, police said. The speed limit on Anastasia is 25 mph. After Picard struck the mailbox at a residence, he and the bike tumbled and flipped, landing in the driveway of another house, said Sgt. Denny Pierson. “He was wearing a helmet, but he was killed right there,” Pierson said. The impact knocked Picard’s helmet off, police said.
