A Haines City man was killed Saturday afternoon when her motorcycle struck a motor home on County Road 557 near the Interstate 4 interchange in Davenport, according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.
Kristen Pierre, 22, was traveling southbound on CR 557 and collided with a Cobra motor home and trailer driven by Richard Cummings, 67, of Rock Falls, Illinois. Cummings was traveling northbound on CR 557 and turning left onto the on-ramp to get to I-4 westbound.
Pierre’s 2005 Kawasaki motorcycle struck the trailer tongue behind the motor home, disconnecting the trailer and ejecting Pierre, who was wearing a helmet, from the bike. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The southbound lanes of CR 557 in that area were shut down for several hours.
The PCSO’s investigation is ongoing.
