Just after midnight on Feb. 28, UCF student Josie Moore-Boatwright was involved in an accident on Tanner Road that resulted in a fatality.

Moore-Boatwright, 23, was making a U-turn in her 2013 Ford Mustang at the entrance of East Lake Elementary when motorcyclist Dale Williams, 29, struck the right side of her vehicle, according to the Florida Highway Patrol report.

The report states Williams' 2007 Honda motorcycle was traveling at a "high rate of speed." Though the report states he was wearing a helmet, he was pronounced dead by a medical examiner.

Moore-Boatwright is currently at Florida Hospital East being treated for minor injuries.

FHP is still determining whether Williams was driving while under the influence.

The crash is still under investigation.
