Man Succumbs To Injuries Sustained In Motorcycle Crash
DELRAY BEACH, Fla. — A Florida man has succumbed to injuries he sustained in a motorcycle crash that killed his wife, Delray Beach police report.
The 66-year-old man died at Delray Medical Center eight days after his wife, 65, was killed when an out-of-control car on a test drive hit their motorcycle on I-95.
His wife died shortly after the crash happened on the exit ramp on I-95 near Linton Blvd.
The couple lived part-time in Hallandale Beach.
The two were heading south on their Honda Goldwing motorcycle when a 28-year-old man of Fort Lauderdale lost control of a 2002 Lexus sedan and hit them. The driver, a mechanic at a nearby Toyota dealership, was test-driving the Lexus at the time of the crash.
Witnesses told investigators he was driving at high speeds when he swerved to avoid another car. He lost control of the Lexus and drove into the southbound lanes. He drove into soft dirt on the west side of the roadway before hitting the motorcycle, witnesses said.
The man and his wife were both wearing helmets when they crashed.
The investigation into the crash is ongoing.
