A car dealership mechanic crashed into a motorcycle with two riders and killed one of them, according to Delray Beach police and the Florida Highway Patrol.
The mechanic was test-driving a 2002 Lexus sedan and police officials say witnesses told them he was traveling at a high rate of speed.
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 on which a man and woman were riding.
Police say both riders were transported to Delray Medical Center as trauma alerts where the man was later pronounced dead. The female 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.
DBPD traffic homicide is still investigating the cause of the fatal crash in the 2000 block of S. Dixie Hwy.
Attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded about the crash. “Whenever you are behind the wheel of a car, please make sure you are paying attention to all road signs and signals. If you are in an accident where someone didn’t follow the posted signs or signals, please call me so that we can discuss your rights.”
