HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – An 18-year-old Fort Lauderdale motorcyclist died Saturday morning after rear-ending a car while riding down Interstate 95 in Hollywood, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The man, who has not been publicly identified pending family notification, was riding his bike southbound on I-95 south of the Sheridan Street exit at around 5:15 a.m. when he rear-ended a Chevrolet Impala, ejecting him from the bike, troopers said.
