Taxi And Motorcycle Crash On Interstate 95 left Several People Injured
Two people were left critical in a deadly motorcycle crash in Independence on an Interstate 95 ramp, the Florida Highway Patrol officials said.
A 36-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, Florida Highway Patrol officials said in a press release.
The 36-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 northbound lanes, Florida Highway Patrol said.
A 28-year-old from South Beach and the passenger of the motorcycle were taken to Delray Medical Center in Palm Beach where their conditions haven’t been released, troopers said.
Investigators said, the victims were wearing motorcycle helmets and safety gear. The 36-year-old had a temporary motorcycle permit but had not obtained a motorcycle endorsement, authorities said.
The taxi driver and one other passenger also sustain injuries in the crash, but are expected to survive as the injuries are non-life threatening.
FHP said, speed appears to be a factor in the crash. The accident remains under investigation
