Lake Alfred Man, 39, Killed In Motorcycle Crash On MLK Blvd. In Winter Haven Identified

A Lake Alfred man died Tuesday morning, October 31, 2023, after he was involved in a two-vehicle crash in Winter Haven.

39-year old Adam Walling was transported to a local hospital for injuries that included head trauma, but he was pronounced deceased shortly after arriving.

The crash occurred at about 9:17 am; deputies from the Polk County Sheriff’s Office and members from Winter Haven Fire Department responded to the crash on Martin Luther King Boulevard NE at Jewett Street.

According to preliminary findings of the PCSO Traffic Homicide Investigations, Mr. Walling was driving a white 2007 Honda motorcycle east on Martin Luther King Boulevard, while a white 2005 Ford Expedition was heading west.

The Ford Expedition began making a left turn (south) to Jewett Street to enter the Buckeye Ridge neighborhood, and in doing so, crossed in front of Mr. Walling’s motorcycle which had the right-of-way.

PCSO detectives believe Mr. Walling laid his motorcycle down and became separated from the bike.

Mr. Wolling slid under the front part of the Ford Expedition. He was not wearing a helmet.

Neither the driver, nor the passenger in the Ford Expedition were injured in the crash.

Martin Luther King Boulevard was reopened for traffic after approximately three hours, but the investigation remains ongoing.
