A crash, involving a 2019 Harley-Davidson motorcycle and a 2011 Chevrolet Malibu car, occurred at around 9:27 p.m. on Saturday, January 10, 2021, on Dixie Highway, Lake Worth Beach, Florida.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said that the motorcyclist, named James Kelly, aged 53, was traveling northbound on the highway toward the intersection of 5th Avenue North. At the same moment, the car was traveling southbound on the highway toward 5th Avenue North with the intention to turn left. The West Palm Beach car driver, named Shirlene Rolle, aged 53, failed to notice the motorcycle and turned left. The motorcyclist couldn’t manage to avoid hitting the car.
At the time of the accident, Karen Rivers, 59 – the motorcycle passenger – and the motorcyclist were ejected from the motorbike. The motorcyclist sustained severe injuries and was taken to St. Mary’s Medical Center for treatment after the crash. The motorcycle passenger was declared dead at the scene.
If any nearby person or vehicle were injured/damaged as a result of the driver’s negligence, there would likely be a valid personal injury claim.
