A 22-year-old boy and his father were seriously injured in a crash in Lake Worth, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office authorities said.
Joe Lemon riding a 1995 BMW with 43-year-old Greg Donald heading east on Lake Avenue, the sheriff’s office said. A 2008 Mazda CX-7 drove through the intersection at South F Street onto Lake, colliding with the motorcycle.
Authorities say a 20-year-old boy of Lake Worth had stopped at the stop sign but went into the intersection before letting the motorcycle pass. Records indicate the motorcycle had the right of way.
Joe and Greg, both of Lake Worth, were thrown from the bike and slid under a parked car. The Mazda collided with a tree.
The boy sustained serious injuries in the wreck and Greg was critically injured. Both were taken to St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach. Investigators say the injuries they sustained indicate they were wearing helmets at the time of the wreck.
A relative, who asked not to be identified, said that the father and son are in a great amount of pain but are recovering.
The 20-year old boy, who was wearing a seat belt, was not injured in the wreck. It was unclear whether he will face charges.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious motorcycle accident resulting in injuries.
