Retired Largo Biker Killed in Hernando County Motorcycle Accident

Friends and family members are mourning a Largo grandmother who was recently killed at the age of 71 in a local motorcycle accident.

Lu Hadderman was riding as a passenger on a blue BMW motorcycle with Clearwater resident George Talcott heading south on US 41 when the fatal collision occurred. While making their way through northern Hernando County, a 2006 Chrysler entering the highway from Lake Lindsey Road crashed into the pair.

Talcott, 75, was severely injured in the motorcycle accident and transported to Bayonet Point Hospital for treatment. Hadderman was also treated for serious injuries but passed away in a matter of hours due to the severity of her injuries.

According to statements that Hadderman’s family made to the press, motorcycles had always played a big role in her life. Her youngest son began riding a dirt bike at the age of eight, and she had enjoyed riding with Talcott frequently during the last two years. Hadderman had lost both an adult nephew and a fiance to separate motorcycle accidents over the course of her life.

The Chrysler that struck Hadderman and Talcott was driven by Richard Miller. His vehicle also struck a 2003 Chevy Tahoe driven by Christine Zoucha in a head-on collision, but no one was seriously injured in the accident.
