About Ormond Beach
Located just north of Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach is a great place to live, and it's a popular tourist destination for motorcyclists, families, and college students. The temperate climate and beautiful beaches are year-round attractions; in addition, there are a number of popular events and vacation breaks that greatly increase the number of visitors to the area at one time, including the Daytona 500, Daytona Bike Week, and spring break.
While tourism boosts the local economy, the downside is that the sheer number of people that visit the city can increase the risk of accidents. Add to that alcohol-fueled or generally reckless behavior, and it's really not all that surprising that we see an increase in injuries and fatalities during these seasonal events.
Daytona Bike Week
Daytona Bike Week is a 10-day event that is typically held in March and attracts half a million people each year. Unfortunately, the influx of visitors and traffic can result in an increase in motorcycle accidents. According to news reports, Daytona Bike Week resulted in significantly more injuries and deaths in 2021 than in previous years.
Hospital officials reported that 91 people involved in motorcycle accidents were seriously injured in 2021. In comparison, 58 motorcycle crash patients were injured in 2020 and 61 were injured in 2019.
Six people died at Bike Week in 2020 and one person died in 2019. In 2021, a total of eight deaths occurred, all caused by motorcycle accidents. Two of these motorcycle accidents happened in Ormond Beach.
Fatalities in Ormond Beach
One of the fatalities in 2021 occurred when a rider was traveling northbound on I-95; his motorcycle ran off the highway and rolled over. The other fatality occurred on Airport Road.
