Motorcyclist Killed In Suburban West Palm Crash
WEST PALM BEACH — A motorcyclist struck a car on Military Trail in suburban West Palm Beach, authorities said. The driver of the car sustained life-threatening injuries.
Authorities say the 20-year-old Lake Worth man died when his Yamaha motorcycle collided with a Toyota Camry at the 2600 block of Military Trail.
The Toyota’s driver, who is yet to be identified, was taken to St. Mary’s Medical Center with life-threatening injuries, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.
According to a sheriff’s report, the motorcyclist was traveling south behind another vehicle in Military’s outside lane in the moments before the crash. The car driver was driving eastbound, heading out of a shopping plaza and beginning to cross the southbound lanes to make a left turn.
At the same time, the motorcyclist moved into the center lane and rapidly accelerated, PBSO said. His motorcycle struck the driver’s side of the Toyota, causing the car to rotate and hit a vehicle that was stopped in a northbound turn lane.
The driver of the northbound vehicle was not injured, the crash report said.
Attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this accident. “It is so important to be aware of motorcyclists on the road because of the severity of their injuries in accidents. There was a public service campaign that encouraged drivers to look left, right and left again just to provide added protection to motorcyclists. If you were injured in an accident and want to discuss your rights, please contact my office for a free consolation”.
