Motorcyclist Joshua Becker Killed In Accident

Winter Haven, Florida – On 1-12-16 at approximately 6:15 a.m., a 2006 Honda CBR 1000 driven by 26 year-old Joshua R. Becker of Winter Haven was traveling northbound on Hwy 17. At the same time, a 2006 Maroon Mercury Gran Marquis driven by 63 year-old Diana King of Winter Haven was southbound on Hwy 17.

King approached the intersection of Ave. I NW and started making an eastbound turn onto Ave. I NW and pulled into the path of Becker. It appears Becker made an attempt to avoid the crash, however his bike slid sideways striking the passenger side of the Mercury.

A Winter Haven officer arrived on scene and immediately began administering CPR to Becker. Polk County Emergency Services arrived and Becker was pronounced deceased at the scene. Becker was wearing a helmet.

The crash investigation is ongoing and charges are pending.
Hwy 17 was shut down in both directions and re-opened at approximately 11 a.m.
