The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said, a 17-year-old boy from Loxahatchee was injured in a dirt bike crash with another vehicle.
The crash happened on West Sycamore Drive and 185th Trail North in Loxahatchee.
Palm Beach Sheriff Office said, the teen, identified as Josh Carter, was illegally riding a 2018 Honda dirt bike on the southern sidewalk of Sycamore Drive approaching the intersection with 185th Trail North.
At the same time, the driver of a 2017 Ford Expedition had stopped for a stop sign at 185th Trail North, located south of Sycamore Drive.
The driver of the Expedition pulled forward to check for approaching traffic. That’s when Palm Beach Sheriff Office said Carter drove off the sidewalk and onto 185th Trail and into the right front of the Expedition.
As the crash ensued, Carter and a passenger, Vince Trevor, 13 of Loxahatchee, were both ejected from the bike.
The Palm Beach Sheriff Office said, Carter was transferred to the hospital by paramedics at the scene. Trevor was transported to a local hospital and was treated for serious injuries that were described as not life-threatening.
The driver of the Expedition suffered minor injuries. No charges have been filed yet.
