Motorcyclist Killed In Collision With RV

On July 17th, Raymond Vosika, 73, of Chipley, Florida, was driving a motorcycle with a sidecar northbound on US 441 when he entered a right-hand curve. As he was negotiating the curve, the unoccupied sidecar started lifting up off the roadway. Vosika could not control it and his motorcycle crossed into the southbound lane of travel with the sidecar in the air. The motorcycle’s windshield hit the front of a southbound recreational vehicle, causing Vosika to fall off. He was then hit by the RV. The motorcycle continued forward, ending up in the northbound lane of travel. Vosika was found to be dead on arrival. No other individuals were injured. Rangers had to close US 441 for almost two hours to investigate and clear the scene. Ranger Carmen Barnard is the case officer.
