A 23-year-old Royal Palm Beach man is in the hospital with serious injuries after slamming his motorcycle into a car in Greenacres Thursday night, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s officials report.
Adam Leighton Castle was taken to Delray Beach Medical Center’s trauma unit where authorities say he is in critical condition.
The crash happened at 10:32 p.m. near the intersection of South Jog Road and Purdy Lane. According to the preliminary investigation, Castle was on a Kawasaki motorcycle headed north on Jog Road at “an extremely high rate of speed” approaching the intersection when he hit the right passenger side corner of a Chevy Camaro.
The impact caused the Camaro to spin and the motorcycle to flip and then slide for 530 feet north along Jog Road, the report said. The Camaro’s driver, Dorotea J. Velasquez, 60, of Greenacres was not injured. The report does not detail Castle’s injuries or whether he was wearing a helmet.
