Motorcyclist collides on U.S. 301 with vehicle driven by Oxford Oaks woman

A motorcyclist was transported by ambulance to Ocala Regional Medical Center after he collided with a vehicle driven by an Oxford Oaks woman

Angela Maria Guerra-Hoyt, 54, who lives on Stewart Loop in the subdivision on U.S. 301 in Oxford, was at the wheel of a 2001 Ford Crown Victoria at 7:15 a.m. Wednesday southbound on U.S. 301 when she entered into a left turn lane and began to execute a U-turn, according to an accident report from the Wildwood Police Department.

She failed to yield to a 2017 Harley-Davidson motorcycle ridden by 57-year-old Thomas Lee Casher of Ocklawaha, who had been traveling north on U.S. 301.
