A 71-year-old man is dead after his motorcycle strikes a vehicle in Oakland Park.

At approximately 6:18 p.m. Nov. 21, Broward County Regional Communications received a call in reference to a traffic crash at the 1300 E. Oakland Park Blvd in Oakland Park.

Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies responded and located a traffic crash involving a 2017 Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle and a 2003 Toyota Corolla. 

BSO Traffic Homicide detectives’ preliminary investigation revealed that the Toyota, driven by Joseph Laura IV, was traveling westbound on East Oakland Park Blvd., attempting to make a left turn onto Northeast 13th Avenue when a motorcycle, driven by Adrian Peschl, was traveling eastbound at a high rate of speed on East Oakland Park Blvd. Peschl’s motorcycle struck the passenger side of Laura’s vehicle causing the motorcycle to end up partially inside the vehicle. 

Oakland Park Fire Rescue responded and transported both drivers to Broward Health Medical Center where Peschl was pronounced deceased and Laura remains in a stable but critical condition.
