A fatal accident occurred on Florida’s Turnpike in West Palm Beach, where a 33-year-old man from Miramar lost his life after his motorcycle collided with an SUV. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the incident took place at around 5:08 a.m. The motorcyclist was riding a 2019 Kawasaki Ninja in the southbound outside lane, nearing the 105.5 mile marker between 45th Street and the Beeline Highway. Simultaneously, a 72-year-old man from Weston was driving a 2022 Ford Escape SUV in the same direction and lane.
The exact cause of the accident is still being investigated, but it appears that the motorcyclist failed to notice the SUV ahead and crashed into its rear. After the collision, the motorcycle veered southwest, traveling across the outer paved shoulder. As a result, the motorcycle overturned, and the rider was thrown off. Sadly, the motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene by Palm Beach Gardens Fire Rescue due to the severe personal injuries he sustained in the collision and its aftermath.
Our thoughts and best wishes go out to the family of the deceased victim following this tragic motorcycle accident in West Palm Beach, Florida.
