MELBOURNE, Florida -- The Florida Highway Patrol reported that a 65-year-old Palm Bay Man has died as a result of injuries he sustained in a traffic accident that occurred on Wickham Road at 7:40 a.m. this morning.  His name has not been released pending next-of-kin notification.

57-year-old Konah Denny, of Orlando, Florida, was driving a 2005 Toyota 4-door southbound on Wickham Road  around 7:40 a.m. while the Palm Bay man was riding a 1986 Honda motorcycle northbound.
