Deadly crash between Enis Dixon, who was driving her four door Toyota and John Paul Hernandez on his Suzuki motorcycle.
Mr. Hernandez was driving a 2008 Suzuki southbound on Haverhill Road in the outside lane approaching Cypress Boulevard, said sheriff’s office spokeswoman Teri Barbera. Enis Dixon, 78, was driving her Toyota northbound on Haverhill Road in the left turn lane at the intersection.
There was a car in front of Hernandez, and when Dixon started to make the left hand turn, Hernandez changed into the inside lane, she said.
A “violent collision” occurred between the front of Hernandez’ motorcycle and the right front corner of Dixon’s Toyota, Barbera said.
Hernandez, who was wearing a helmet, was ejected from his bike. He was pronounced dead on the scene by fire rescue officials, she said.
Speed appears to have been a factor in the crash, she said.
The intersection of Haverhill Road and Cypress Boulevard was shut down for over 2 hours as Palm Beach Fire Rescue was charged with clearing the scene.
