A motorcyclist was killed after colliding with a car making a turn off U.S. 1 Thursday afternoon near Palmetto Bay.
An 18-year-old man was riding his motorcycle north on South Dixie Highway near 183rd Street shortly before 4 p.m. when he hit the side of a southbound car that was turning left onto a side street, Kelly Craig, spokeswoman for the Village of Palmetto Bay, said on the town’s Facebook page.
Miami-Dade police have not released the teen’s name, Craig said.
Craig said police blocked northbound traffic for about a mile, from 184th Street to Wayne Avenue, while the Miami-Dade Medical Examiner’s Office investigated the crash.
