DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A Wellington man is dead after police say he ejected himself from his motorcycle to avoid a crash.
Andrew Sullivan, 69, of Wellington, was riding his ’71 BMW motorcycle east bound on Atlantic Avenue in the area of Half Mile Road — near Lyons. As he approached Half Mile Road, a stopped car entered the intersection to turn left. Sullivan, police say, trying to avoid a collision, “lay the motorcycle down” — causing serious injury to himself. Sullivan was transported to Delray Medical Center where he later died.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office says there was absolutely no contact between the vehicle entering Atlantic from Half Mile and Sullivan’s motorcycle. The investigation continues. No charges have been filed.
