Broward Sheriff’s Office traffic homicide detectives are investigating a single vehicle crash that killed a Coconut Creek man on Saturday afternoon in Deerfield Beach.
Shortly after noon on Jan. 30, BSO detectives responded to Southwest 10th Street just west of Waterways Boulevard in Deerfield Beach. Preliminary investigation reveals that a motorcycle driver was traveling westbound in the right turn only lane at a high rate of speed. As the roadway curved, he drove off the road and onto the grass. The driver was ejected from the motorcycle and came to rest against a nearby fence.
Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue responded to the scene and transported the driver to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.
Evidence collected as part of the investigation reveals that two vehicles, including a white Dodge Charger, were directly behind the motorcycle in the moments before the crash. Traffic homicide detectives would like to speak with the drivers of those vehicles as part of the crash investigation.
