41-year-old Jerson J. Correa died when his 2004 Suzuki motorcycle struck the passenger side of a 1999 Ford Ranger, investigating authorities said.

The crash incident occurred in the 6400 block of North University Drive within Tamarac.
A 51-year-old man of Lauderhill was driving north when he tried making a U-turn to head south. That is when his truck was T-boned by the 2004 Suzuki motorcycle, Broward County Sheriff’s officials said.
The second southbound motorcycle had managed to swerve into the right lane to avoid triggering a second collision.
The identity of the second motorcyclist has not yet been released, investigators said. It is still unknown if the two motorcyclists were editing together.
The Tamarac Fire Rescue Department pronounced Jerson Correa dead at the crash scene. Investigations by the Traffic Homicide Department is still ongoing.
