PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Palm Beach County man is dead following a crash in Wellington where another driver may have been under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office says Sean Cole, 30, of Loxahatchee, died when he turned his Harley Davidson Motorcycle in front of an oncoming car on Greenview Shores East at the Wellington Marketplace Plaza. PBSO says Mateo Valentin, 29, was driving a Toyota Tacoma and “violated Cole’s right of way, causing a collision.”
Adds PBSO: “During the collision, Cole’s motorcycle impacted the right front of the Toyota, ejecting Cole. Cole was transported to St. Mary’s Medical Center where he succumbed to injuries sustained during the collision.”
While no charges have been filed at this time, the official PBSO advisory lists “alcohol/drugs” as factor attributed to Valentin, the Toyota driver. The investigation continues.
