Palm Coast, FL – A 38-year-old Palm Coast man is dead after troopers say he fell off a motorcycle and crashed in the city’s R-section.
The accident was reported around 12:45 this morning (December 7th) at a residence on Rickenbacker Drive near Rippling Brook Drive.
The Florida Highway Patrol says Joseph James Faircloth was riding a 2004 Big Dog northbound on Rickenbacher when he failed to turn at a left curve and drove onto the grassy shoulder on the right side of the road.
Troopers say that’s when Faircloth fell from the motorcycle, with driver and machine hitting a mailbox before both came to a stop on a private driveway.
FHP’s report shows that Faircloth wasn’t wearing a helmet and was on his back when first responders arrived.
An autopsy report is pending to determine if alcohol or drugs were a factor.
No other vehicles or people were involved, per troopers at the scene.…read more
