SEBASTIAN, Fla. (AP) --

A 93-year-old died when the motorcycle he was driving hit a parked van.

The incident occurred Tuesday afternoon (1/5) in the Barefoot Bay
mobile home community. Police say Gordon Couchene was riding a
Yamaha motorcycle and did not wear a helmet.

Authorities say 37-year-old Lynn Bedus had parked at the western
end of the 5,000-home retirement community while she waited on a
school bus to arrive.

Paramedics initially revived Couchene, but he later died at the
hospital.

The Florida Highway Patrol says there will be no charges in the
wreck. It was unclear why Couchene ran into the van.
