A North Carolina man was killed in a motorcycle crash in Volusia County early Monday evening, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. FHP spokesperson Sgt. Kim Montes says 20-year old Michael Nealy was southbound on I-95 at around 6:40 Monday evening, in the left lane of the interstate. Troopers say Nealy “…attempted to travel across all of the southbound lanes, to exit onto the US-92 [International Speedway Boulevard] exit ramp.” The FHP says Nealy lost control of his motorcycle and struck a guardrail. Troopers reported that Nealy was ejected from the motorcycle, and though he was wearing a helmet, died at the scene of the accident. Volusia County Fire Services and Daytona Beach Fire Department units responded to the accident and the Florida Highway Patrol shutdown the exit ramp during their investigation. Nealy’s hometown in North Carolina was not initially available.
