A car dealership mechanic crashed into a motorcycle with two riders and left them both critical with severe injuries, according to the police and the Florida Highway Patrol.
The mechanic was test-driving a 2002 Lexus sedan and police officials said he was traveling at a high rate of speed.
Witnesses told police, he was traveling northbound in the 2000 block of South Dixie Highway and swerved to avoid another car. The man crossed into the southbound lanes and then into some soft dirt on the west side of the roadway. When he drove back onto Dixie Highway, he collided with the Honda Goldwing motorcycle on which a man and a woman were riding.
Police say, both riders were transported to Delray Medical Center. They were reported in critical condition.
The driver of the Lexus, who works as a mechanic about 8 blocks south of the crash site, was uninjured.
Florida Highway Patrol officials said, the investigation is ongoing and charges are pending.
DBPD traffic homicide is still investigating the cause of the fatal crash in the 2000 block of S. Dixie Hwy.
