According to Florida Highway Patrol’s crash report, witnesses said the motorcyclist was riding north on Buenaventura Boulevard, traveling faster than the posted speed limit without his headlight on, when he struck a van driven by a 39-year-old Kissimmee, that was stopped at the intersection of Majors Lane and and BVL Blvd. and began to make a left turn toward southbound Buenaventura Boulevard.
