Palm Beach Gardens Motorcycle Crash Claims Life of Motorcyclist
Posted on Apr 13, 2012
A deadly Palm Beach Gardens motorcycle crash took place on the morning of March 16, 2012, around 11:00 AM and claimed the life of a 50-year-old Dania Beach man. Police indicated that the man in this motorcycle accident on northbound Interstate 95, between Hood and Donald Ross roads, lost control of his bike and fell off it.
The Florida Highway Patrol indicated that Yair Shatil, the motorcyclist, was initially taken by helicopter to St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach for treatment for serious head injuries. However, he later died of his injuries.
Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Tim Frith indicated that there was a mechanical problem with the motorcycle that Shatil was riding that caused the rear brake to lock, which caused him to lose control and fall onto I-95.
Boaz Edri, a 39-year-old motorcyclist from Hollywood, was behind Shatil when the crash occurred. The collision caused Edri to strike Shatil and drop his bike to the ground as well. Edri was wearing a motorcycle helmet at the time of the crash and suffered serious injuries, but the injuries are not thought to be life-threatening. However, Shatil was not wearing a motorcycle helmet at the time of the crash.
The wreck caused the closure of I-95 so that the Trauma Hawk air ambulance could land and transport the Mr. Shatil to the hospital.
The South Florida accident attorneys at Chalik & Chalik would like to extend our condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Shatil, and we would like to wish Mr. Edri and complete and speedy recovery.
