BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office was on the scene late Tuesday night of a serious accident just east of the entrance to Boca Falls on Palmetto Park Road, near Riverside Drive.

At least one person was rushed to an area hospital after the truck seen in the photo apparently collided with the motorcycle seen laying on the ground.

The was originally dispatched as an accident involving a pedestrian. It is unclear if the “pedestrian” is a third party involved or a motorcyclist thrown from the bike.

This section of Palmetto Park Road is known by some in the area as “death highway” due to the 50 mph speed limit, the proximity to West Boca High School and young drivers — and an onslaught of motorcycle and bicycle riders. There are several roadside memorials for drivers and passengers killed in this area over the past several years.
