The actor who famously played Batman and many other memorable roles apparently loves to ride motorcycles. However, his wife convinced him to not ride on public roads after his daughter was born.

Police say Nathanael Eli Reynolds killed in Ocala motorcycle crash

Police officials have identified the motorcycle rider who died Saturday afternoon in a single-vehicle wreck on a busy two-lane roadway in southeast Ocala.

Officers said the deceased is Nathanael Eli Reynolds of Hernando.

The fatality was the 14th for the city. Ocala police officials said they recorded 16 traffic deaths in 2020. At this time last year, there were 14 deaths.
