Daytona Beach, FL - The victim in a fatal motorcycle accident that shut down a portion of Clyde Morris Boulevard yesterday (October 9) morning is a 48-year-old South Daytona man.  Daytona Beach Police were alerted to the accident, located near New Bellevue Avenue, at 6:33 a.m.  

According to the report, the rider was traveling  southbound on Clyde Morris in the right lane when a car driven by a 52-year-old woman attempted to turn north on Clyde Morris from New Bellevue. The motorcycle t-boned the car on the driver's side, knocking the rider off and putting the bike in the middle of Clyde Morris, facing northeast. The car spun from the impact, ending facing north.
