A bicyclist was severely injured after he was struck by a tractor trailer and thrown into a tree while trying to cross I-95 near the Congress Avenue exit ramp, authorities said.

Boynton Bicycle 41118

The bicyclist, a 27-year-old West Palm Beach man, was rushed to a Regional Health Medical Center with critical life-threatening injuries, said a spokeswoman for the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office.

The bicyclist was traveling on the southbound lane prior to the accident. He attempted to cross the road on I-95 near Congress Avenue exit. A tractor trailer traveling on the same lane lost control and moved onto the center median when he entered the path of the bicycle. As he tried to double back to the median, he struck the bike, Sheriff’s office said.

Both I-95 north and south bound lanes at Congress Avenue are currently shut down due to an accident involving a tractor trailer. Emergency crews are currently on scene with a crane attempting to clear the debris of the wreck causing delays of up to almost an hour.

Drivers are being advised to use the Linton Boulevard or Yamato Road exits as alternate routes, or take the turnpike if they have not gotten on I-95.

The driver of the tractor trailer, a 52-year-old man of Congress Avenue, remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators, the crash report stated. He was not injured. Neither driver impairment nor excessive speed appeared to be factors in the crash. The investigation is ongoing. Investigators urge drivers to make use of alternative routes.

Woman Critically Injured In Boynton Beach Road-Rage Incident

A woman is in a critical condition after being hit by a vehicle in a road-rage incident on the southbound Interstate 95 exit ramp to Gateway Boulevard, Florida Highway Patrol authorities say.

boynton beach road rage

The woman was intentionally hit by a vehicle in what authorities called a road-rage incident. She was not in a vehicle at the time of the crash, though it is unclear how she ended up on the ramp.

First emergency responders arrived at the scene shortly after the crash and the victim was transported to Delray Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. The driver fled the scene, according to authorities. FHP officials said they had identified a possible suspect in the case, but had not released any further information.

The road rage incident in Boynton Beach shut down two exit ramps on Interstate 95 just north of Gateway Boulevard. Authorities closed the ramp and part of the interstate for hours while they investigated. Both northbound and southbound ramps for the Gateway exit of I-95 are now open to traffic after the road-rage incident.

“Florida Highway Patrol responded to a crash on I-95 SB near the exit ramp to Gateway Blvd. Preliminary investigation indicates a vehicle struck a person outside of their car. The victim is at Delray Medical Center in serious condition,” the Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman said.

The investigation into the incident continues.

It will be recalled that a different victim was also shot at the same location last year. Antoine Pernell Smith, 31, was fatally shot in his car as he drove toward the southbound Interstate 95 entrance ramp on Gateway Boulevard. Boynton Beach police have not publicly mentioned road-rage as a possible motive in Smith’s killing. However, the people believed to have shot Smith were suspected of shooting at a BMW on I-95 north of Lantana Road shortly after the killing.

Comments:

Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious road-rage incident involving a pedestrian, which ultimately, resulted in traumatic injuries. We wish the victim a speedy recovery and hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer.
