BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. – A man and a woman riding a motorcycle were stuck by a car when attempting to turn onto U.S. Highway 1 in Scottsmoor, north of Mims, early Sunday, leaving them with fatal and critical injuries respectively, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The 65-year-old man and his 48-year-old passenger, both of Palm Bay, were exiting a parking lot when they entered the direct path of a sedan — driven northbound on U.S. 1 by a 35-year-old Titusville man — and were struck by the car at 1:02 a.m., troopers said.
