A couple from Weston was recently killed in a motorcycle accident after a tire blew out on US 27. According to a friend who had been to dinner with them on the night of the tragic accident, the couple “just completed each other.” The man, 55, and woman, 57, had been together for over 10 years. Information from the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) reveals that the motorcycle’s tire blew out around 9:45 p.m. last week. When this happened, the rider lost control of the motorcycle and both he and the passenger were thrown from the vehicle and stuck by at least three other automobiles. FHP is still investigating the crash.
