A car dealership mechanic crashed into a motorcycle with two riders and critically injured one of them, according to Delray Beach police and the Florida Highway Patrol.
The mechanic was test-driving a 2002 Lexus sedan at a high rate of speed, witnesses said.
Witnesses told police officials 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 that a man and woman were riding.
Police say both riders were transported to Delray Medical Center as trauma alerts where the woman was later transported to another hospital. The male rider is 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 say the investigation is ongoing and charges are pending.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in injuries.
