Glades County man dies in motorcycle accident

A 73-year-old Moore Haven man was killed in a motorcycle accident in Osceola County Saturday morning, the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) reported.

The crash occurred at around 9:32 a.m. on the Florida Turnpike near mile marker 208.

Dennis Stone was reportedly riding a 2012 Kawasaki in the left lane behind a 2015 Nissan SUV, driven by Mantreal Cottle, 43, of Miami Gardens, which slowed down for traffic ahead of it.

Stone was reportedly unable to slow down in time and collided with the rear of the SUV.

He was ejected from the motorcycle and pronounced dead on the scene, according to an accident report.
FHP said the crash is still under investigation.
