A 29-year-old motorcyclist has been identified after colliding with a truck on the Interstate 95 ramp in Palm Beach County in South Florida.
The Florida Patrol said the motorcyclist was entering the northbound entrance ramp but failed to negotiate a left curve, causing his motorcycle to collide with a truck.
FHP said when his motorcycle hit the truck, it caused him to be separated from his motorcycle and fell about 60 feet from the entrance ramp flyover onto the road below.
He came to a final rest on the east-paved shoulder of southbound I-95 and was unconscious at the scene.
The truck driver and three of his passengers were both unconscious and severely injured after the crash, although witnesses said he was unconscious due to the shock.
The crash caused multiple lanes of I-95 southbound to be closed causing major delays for commuters.
The FHP report did not indicate his city or state of residence. The Florida Highway Patrol said another 33-year old passenger in the truck, the driver who he had collided with, was critically injured, and two 13-year old passengers suffered minor injuries in the truck.
Investigators said if anyone has any information about the wreck, call the Florida Highway Patrol.
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”.
