Panama City Teen Dies in Motorcycle Crash
19-year-old Panama City teenager dies because of injuries sustained from a motorcycle crash.
Dylan Corbin was riding his Honda motorcycle down Highway 77 on Sunday October 3, when he collided with a KIA Sorrento. He was going southbound, on the outside lane, when he approached the other car. 71-year-old Jewell Cook was driving when Dylan collided with the left side of the car. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the teen fell off his bike and rolled approximately 300 feet from the crash.
Although he was wearing a helmet at the time, Dylan sustained many severe injuries because of the crash. He needed multiple surgeries and wound therapy. His family announced that an infection had spread after Dylan underwent back surgery. He passed away at 2 p.m. on Sunday, October 25.
Dylan’s friends and family remember him as a caring, kind young man who was always there for them. Senior Sponsor Leah Hudgens believes that the community at Deane Bozeman School has come together because of this tragedy. The students have become closer and are helping each other through this significant loss.
Dylan’s family shared these sentiments about their heartbreak on the Facebook page, “Praying for Dylan”
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body; but rather to skid in broad side, thoroughly worn out, totally used up and loudly proclaiming, ‘Wow — what ride. Today, at 2:00 Dylan entered into the Lord’s nearer presence. He is whole again.
Dylan’s memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. on Wednesday at First Baptist Church.
The Florida Highway Patrol is currently investigating the incident as a traffic homicide.
The attorneys at The Pittman Firm, P.A. would like to send their deepest regrets and condolences to Dylan’s family and friends.
