Former Boca Raton Officer, 58, Killed In Motorcycle Crash
A former Boca Raton officer was driving a motorcycle southbound on Interstate 75 approaching the westbound exit ramp for Griffin Road when he lost control, struck the left guardrail and was killed.
The former Boca Raton, Florida Atlantic University and Fort Lauderdale police officer, retired for just eight months, was killed in a southwest Broward County motorcycle crash, authorities said.
The 58-year-old who lived in Boca Raton retired in November from Fort Lauderdale police, that agency’s interim chief, Karen Dietrich, announced, “with a heavy heart,” on the department’s Facebook page.
Fort Lauderdale police said he had been with the department for 18 years, and had worked in Boca Raton from 1989 to 1995 and at FAU from 1998 to 2002
Police did not name the victim. The agency applies the Florida constitutional amendment approved in November 2018 and modeled after the national Marsy’s Law victims’ rights movement.
Investigations are ongoing into the cause of the crash.
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”.
