Javier Mercado-Cebollero was killed when his motorcycle struck a van driven by Elias Tenorio on Erlich Rd near Hutchinson Rd.  Tenorio reportedly pulled out of a driveway in front of Mercado-Cebollero while attempting to turn left on to Erlich Rd.  Florida Statute 316.125, titled “Vehicle entering highway from private road or driveway or emerging from alley, driveway or building,” provides that “The driver of a vehicle about to enter or cross a highway from an alley, building, private road or driveway shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles approaching on the highway to be entered which are so close thereto as to constitute an immediate hazard.”
