DEERFIELD BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Source: BSO) — Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives are investigating a high-speed crash that claimed the life of a 19-year-old motorcyclist earlier this month in Deerfield Beach.
Just before 5:50 p.m. Aug. 1, Tyler Gusow of the 23000 block of Post Gardens Way in Boca Raton, was driving a 2009 Kawasaki Ninja west on Hillsboro Boulevard when he ran a red light and struck a 2012 Kia Optima as its driver was making a left turn from the boulevard onto Southwest Third Avenue.
Based on evidence and witness accounts, BSO’s Traffic Homicide Investigation detectives believe Gusow was speeding and bypassing vehicles prior to the crash. After impact he was ejected from the Kawasaki and the motorcycle caught fire. Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue responded to the scene and transported Gusow to Broward Health North where he was pronounced dead. The Kia driver remained at the scene and was cooperative.
THI detectives used biometrics and fingerprint analysis to positively identify Gusow. The crash investigation continues.
