He said, the 65-year-old man, who was driving, had an unstable back fracture and his wife had internal chest injuries.

They were flown from the crash scene to Boca Raton.

The motorcyclist and his passenger both died at the scene of the crash, according to Florida Highway Patrol.

Palm Beach County police at the crash scene said, the couple’s Toyota Yaris was second in a line of three other cars heading toward Wellington going around the bend just off the Boynton Beach.

A Palm Beach County police inspector said, it appeared the third car attempted to overtake the two cars in front, then the second car attempted to overtake.

He said, it seemed the second car and third car clipped each other and then the second car speared off to the left, crashing through a farm fence, smashing through a section of cyclone fence surrounding the house before slamming into the oncoming motorcyclist.

Driver Who Struck And Killed 18-Year-Old Brian Hardy Will Not Be Charged

Port St. Lucie police said, a pedestrian has died after being hit by a car. The victim was struck at SW Rosser Boulevard and SW Apricot Road.

PSL Cop Car 1010

Police have identified the struck pedestrian as 18-year-old Brian Hardy.

Authorities say, they were finally able to identify the teen while canvassing the neighborhood near the accident scene. They say Brian’s brother approached the police and gave them a description of what he was wearing when he had left the house.

His family told the police that Brian told them he was walking to McDonald’s.

Brian and his family had just moved to Port St. Lucie from Broward County and was not yet enrolled in the local school district.

The driver involved in the crash stopped and called 911. He is not facing charges.

An assistant police chief said, it was a very sensitive case, not knowing who the victim was.

“We may never know what happened because obviously we can’t talk to him and find out what his intentions were crossing the road. It appears he was standing in the middle of the road, in the median and it was just an unfortunate tragedy,” he said.
