BOYNTON BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office this morning confirms that a man critically injured while riding a motorcycle yesterday has died. He also, police say, may have been under the influence of alcohol or drugs. According to police, 49 year old Ira A. Rosenberg of Aladdin Avenue in Boynton was driving a motorcycle northbound on El Clair Ranch Road — just south of Boynton Beach Blvd., in the left turn lane. Another vehicle was traveling westbound on Boynton Beach Blvd. east of El Clair Ranch Road. Police say Rosenberg drove through a solid red light and was hit broadside by the oncoming car which had a green light. Rosenberg was ejected from his motorcycle. He was rushed to Delray Medical Center where he later died.
Police say he was “possibly impaired.”
Neither the driver nor passenger in the striking vehicle were seriously injured. Both were wearing seat belts.
