BROWARD COUNTY, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2023 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A North Broward County woman is dead following a motorcycle crash in the area of 1300 South Military Trail in Deerfield Beach.
According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, the fatal crash occurred at approximately 11:55 a.m., Monday, March. 6, near the 1300 block of South Military Trail. The preliminary on-scene investigation revealed Courtney Lee was riding a 2022 Yongfu 1500 CC motorcycle northbound on Military Trail, within the inside lane. Detectives say the lane curved to the right, and Lee lost control of the motorcycle and struck the inside median. The impact ejected Lee from the two-wheeled vehicle and into a tree.
BSO deputies and Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue responded. While on scene, bystanders, BSO deputies, and paramedics attempted lifesaving efforts. The victim was subsequently transported to Broward Health North and pronounced deceased due to her injuries.
According to witnesses and physical evidence on the scene, the motorcycle was traveling at a high rate of speed when the crash occurred. Further investigation also revealed the victim was not licensed to operate a motorcycle, and that the vehicle had been in the victim’s possession for less than three weeks.
Detectives say excessive speed is considered a contributing factor to the crash.
