A 54-year old woman has died following a motorcycle accident late on Saturday night in Sarasota County.
Troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol say Patricia Benavides failed to negotiate a curve on Crestwood Road.

Her bike left the roadway and struck a couch that had been left on the side of the road. That caused her bike to flip, and her to be thrown off.

She was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.
