Toledo motorcyclist killed in crash

A motorcyclist is dead tonight after a traffic accident in the Toledo District. Police reports are that thirty year old Fidel Coc, a salesman from San Antonio Village, was driving his motorcycle around seven o’clock Tuesday night on the Southern Highway just outside of Punta Gorda, when he collided with a bus travelling in the opposite direction. According to the bus driver, thirty year old Tyrone Coleman, he had no way to avoid the collision as the cyclist suddenly swerved into his lane. As a result of the accident, Coc sustained serious head and body injuries and was rushed to the Punta Gorda Hospital in critical condition, but died later that night. Coleman has been charged with manslaughter by negligence, causing death by careless conduct and driving without due care and attention.
