Motorcyclist killed in multi-car crash on Interstate 75 in Broward

 

A motorcyclist was killed Sunday morning in an accident on Interstate 75 in Pembroke Pines.

The northbound cyclist, who was heading north on the highway around 5 a.m., slammed his 2011 Harley Davidson into the rear of an SUV just north of Pines Boulevard.

The impact sent the rider, who was not wearing a helmet, flying off his bike and onto the roadway, where he was struck by another oncoming vehicle. That driver, who did not realized what he had hit, drove on to the next exit where he called police.

I-75 was shutdown for hours as the Florida Highway Patrol conducted an investigation.

The name of the victim has not been released.
