A 20-year-old motorcyclist and his 16-year-old passenger were killed in a car wreck in Palm Beach County after the car hit an incoming Honda Accord and then plowed into a gas station fuel pump and burst into flames, police officials and the Florida Highway Patrol said.
The 20-year-old motorcyclist was traveling west on Boynton Beach just past the intersection of Riviera Beach Highway when he lost control and struck the pump at a gas station, Florida Highway Patrol officials said.
Both the driver and the 16-year-old female passenger were pronounced dead at the scene by the PalmBeach County medical examiner.
The Florida Highway Patrol said, two people in the Honda Accord were taken to a nearby hospital.
The victim’s names were withheld pending family notification.
Photos of the aftermath of the horrific crash show the gas station’s canopy semi-collapsed and the bike mangled.
It is still unclear if the motorcyclist or the driver of the Honda was at fault. The crash is still under investigation.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in a fatality.
