Bikers Push for Safety After Deadly Accident

By  | 

PANAMA CITY BEACH - The local biker community is coming together to send a message to drivers.

This after two of their own, Scott Davis and Melissa Deberry, were killed in a crash with a car last night on Moylan Road.

If you aren't paying attention to motorcyclists chances are you'll miss them.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers say an SUV turned from Moylan Road in front of the motorcycle.

The driver of the bike, Scott Davis and his rider, Melissa Deberry were both killed.

With spring break in full swing in Panama City Beach, bikers are banding together to remind drivers to stay alert.

"Before you turn left look two times, three times. Just wait and stop for the bikers please," said friend, Kimberly A. Haverhals.

Within the last week, the couple's loved ones say three bikers have died in car crashes.

Haverhals said, "The more people that don't pay attention basically the more I'm going to lose of my friends and I don't want to have that happen."

Friends hope drivers will remember Monday's tragedy and be more careful on the roads.

"They went doing what they loved to do most. They went riding and that's what they loved to do most was ride the bikes. They are riding up in heaven," said friend, Vicki Plaisted.

No word on whether the two were wearing helmets.
