Two people died in a deadly motorcycle crash on an Interstate 95 ramp, the Florida Highway Patrol officials said.
A 22-year old man of Delray Beach was thrown from his red 2012 Kawasaki Ninja as he drove west on Interstate 95 and tried to exit onto the Boca Raton ramp before crashing into a taxi heading the opposite direction, troopers and the Florida Highway Patrol officials said in a press release.
The 22- year old man’s motorcycle slid off the left side of the ramp as it curved to the right. It overturned and traveled over both highways and came to a rest in the grass median that separates the ramps from the Interstate 95 northbound lanes, Florida Highway Patrol said.
A 19- year old South Beach passenger of the motorcycle, was taken to Delray Medical Center in Palm Beach where she died from her injuries, troopers said.
Investigators said the victims both wore motorcycle helmets and safety gear. The 22-year old had a temporary motorcycle permit, authorities said.
The taxi driver sustain injuries in the crash, but is expected to survive, as the injuries are non-life threatening.
FHP said speed appears to be a factor in the crash. The incident remains under investigation.
