A three-vehicle crash near Hypoluxo Road left a Riviera Beach man dead and closed traffic in both directions on Federal Highway for several hours.
Jones Roland Calani, 33, died at the scene after he was ejected from the 2006 Infiniti G35 he was driving. He was struck by a 2005 Acura RL as he was lying on the pavement, according to a Florida Highway Patrol Officer.
After hitting Calani, the Acura overturned, leaving its 27-year-old driver with serious injuries. The 27-year-old driver was taken to Bethesda Hospital East in Riviera Beach. No place of residence for the driver was immediately available.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Calani was driving southbound in the inside lane of Federal Highway when he veered left and struck the median curb. The Infiniti continued south and struck two trees, causing Calani to be thrown onto the roadway.
A 2012 Honda Civic driven by a 23-year-old stopped behind the area of the collision to assist, FHP said.
The 37-year-old driver was traveling south on Federal and turned the Acura abruptly to avoid crashing into the Honda. The Acura sideswiped the Honda, then hit Calani, whose body was on the inside lane.
The crash, remains under investigation according to the Florida Highway Patrol Department.
Toxicology tests on Calani are pending, FHP said.
The 23-year-old Honda driver who stopped to help, was not injured. No place of residence was available for her.
