Motorcyclist dies in parking lot accident

A motorcyclist died this morning after losing control of his bike in a grocery store parking lot.

Police responded about 7:40 a.m. to the accident at the Food 4 Less parking lot in the 4000 block of Decatur Boulevard, near Flamingo Road, said Officer Jose Hernandez, a Metro Police spokesman.

Witnesses told police the motorcyclist, 27, was speeding through the parking lot when the motorcycle fell over on its right side and went sliding on the pavement. The bike then hit a concrete planter box in front of an empty business.

The motorcyclist suffered unspecified head injuries and died, Hernandez said.

This was the second fatal crash reported by Metro this year.
