A Plantation man was critically injured when he got out just after a crash on Interstate 95 and was struck by another vehicle, the Florida Highway Patrol reported.
According to an FHP report, two vehicles were southbound on the expressway, south of Gateway Boulevard, when, “for reasons still under investigation,” the 2006 BMW driven by 53-year old Greg Lincoln, veered off the roadway to the right, struck the concrete wall barrier, and overturned.
A 48-year old driving a 1997 Toyota Tacoma, did not see the BMW up ahead and struck it.
Lincoln got out of his vehicle and stood in the travel lane. A third vehicle, a 2003 Toyota Matrix, and then struck Lincoln, throwing him into his truck bed. Boynton Beach Fire-Rescue paramedics took him to Delray Medical Center, where he was later listed in critical condition, the report said.
The report did not say the relationship if any between the two people and a spokesman did not return a call.
A relative said the victims were not related but said the family was too distraught to talk.
The report said Lincoln; and two of his passengers all suffered minor injuries. The report said all three were wearing seatbelts, and alcohol was not involved.
It said its unknown if alcohol was involved in the case of the 48-year old. All involved were from the West Palm Beach area, the report said. It did not provide addresses.
