The Florida Highway Patrol said a 63-year-old man was killed on Saturday, May 1, in a dirt bike accident at the Sandlot Adventure Park in Punta Gorda.

The crash was reported at 9:43 a.m., at the park on Bermont Road, west of SR-31.

The crash happened while the driver attempted a jump on a track, troopers said.

The park, according to its website, is the “only park of its kind in the entire southeast United States”  made up of 25-plus miles of off-road trails for ATV riders, motocross riders, RV owners, and beach-goers alike.

The Florida Highway Patrol no longer releases the names of those involved in crashes, citing Marsy’s Law.
