Accidentally killing himself over the weekend~, 18-year-old Dustin Gulsby passed away just hours after receiving his diploma from Riverdale High School on Saturday. The grief of a life that was cut short comes fast after the celebration of a significant milestone.
At the intersection of State Road 82 and Sunshine Boulevard, Dustin was operating a motorcycle when he was involved in a collision with an automobile. According to his aunt Kristi Gulsby, his family is quite proud of him. Gulsby described the former student as “just a nice kid.” “He carries himself with such dignity and poise. Always there to lend a hand to those he cares about.” As Dustin’s family is dealing with their grief over his passing, they want everyone to know what a remarkable individual he was. “Never got in trouble, never angry, never seen him upset or mad,” Gulsby claimed. “The thing is, it’s just so unbelievable. It is difficult to accept.”
Gulsby claimed that his greatest interest was in anything that ran on gasoline. “He was just a motorhead,” Gulsby remarked of him. “He enjoyed playing with the vehicles, especially the motorbikes, street bikes, and cars. And like I was saying before, he has always had things to play with throughout his entire childhood. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the man was driving his motorbike on Sunday evening when he was involved in an accident with a car that occurred near the intersection of State Road 82 and Sunshine Blvd.
Dustin was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, and his family has stated that the event has completely rocked their lives. “I’ve never felt this much pain,” Gulsby said to the other person. “I’m angry. “I’m furious that something like this happened to him.” This is not the first time a collision of this severity has occurred at this crossroads.
The Florida Highway Patrol’s Lieutenant Greg Bueno has been vocal in the past about his opposition to risky behaviors like street racing and excessive speeding on State Road 82. “It’s certainly common, and it’s concerning because State Route 82 is a community roadway; on that road, we have school buses, bicycles, and pedestrians,” Bueno said. “It’s certainly prevalent.”
