Billy Lane, famous for his custom choppers, appearances on TV and owner of Choppers, Inc. in Melbourne, Florida, was involved in a fatal crash last night on State Road A1A south of Melbourne Beach. Lane was driving his Dodge Ram pickup when he attempted to pass two vehicles over a double yellow line. After passing the vehicles, he failed to get back in his lane fast enough and ran head on into a 1983 Yamaha Moped, killing the driver. The truck then hit a power pole. A passenger in Lane’s pickup was also injured, Lane was treated and released.
No charges have been filed while police await the results of blood-alcohol tests.
Thanks for the tip, Justin.
UPDATE: Lane charged with DUI
