  1. Old people kill another one. That’s at least the second one in Boca this year where a motorcycle rider has been killed by someone over 70

  2. I was at the scene with my son. The front of the car was torn off by the bike. Willy was seen doing wheely’s at 100 miles an hour on Glades right before he took off the front end of the car. I don’t know what these kids are thinking when they are riding at 100 miles an hour in the street. Not caring aboubt anyone else on the road. Kids think about your friends and mothers and they way they have to suffer. Please be careful driving. RIP to Willy

    1. I ride and find it impossible that he was doing a wheelie at 100 mph. I was at the scene too and the officer there told us that the elderly couple cut right in front of William. I do agree that the cycle was obviously flying down the road, however the elderly drivers poor reaction time or poor vision contributed to the collision in this case. As a cycle rider, I agree that the younger riders need to slow it way down and be more careful and less reckless. Especially here in S. Florida with so many elderly drivers.

  3. It’s probably not a great idea to blame the elderly people involved… It could just as easily been the kid on the bike’s fault.. in fact… more likely from what I understand, he ran a light…

    1. Anom, look at the statistics and then tell me why I shouldn’t blame the elderly. We are in even more danger here in Boca based on the population here and in Palm Beach Co as a whole. Here are some statistics that back up the fact that elders over 65 should be tested yearly ( lobbying groups like AARP are one of the main reasons this hasn’t happened yet.)

      The PBSO statistics show that in the last two years alone 7 motorcycle deaths have been attributed to accidents involving drivers over 65.
