Dunnellon, FL (3/16/2020) – Emergency responders airlifted a motorcyclist after he hit the side of a vehicle last Wednesday. The accident occurred around 4:58 p.m. at the intersection of US 41 and West Dunnellon Road. 

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, 68-year-old John Dickey Reese was driving his maroon 1986 Honda Gold Wing south on US 41. When he ran the red light at West Dunnellon Road, he collided with a white 2016 Jeep Renegade turning north onto US 41. Reese was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident and was airlifted to Ocala Regional Medical Center where he remains in serious condition.

The driver of the Jeep, 25-year-old Isaac Corey Abbott, and his passenger, 31-year-old Elizabeth Ann Blout, weren’t injured in the crash. The Florida Highway Patrol is still investigating the accident, but they don’t suspect drugs or alcohol contributed to the incident.
