The motorcyclist struck by a hit-and-run driver last month in Deerfield Beach has died from his injuries. The Broward Sheriff’s Office Traffic Homicide Unit is continuing to seek clues to locate the driver who struck him.
According to investigators, around 10:23 p.m. on Monday, March 11, Broward County Regional Communications received reports of a hit-and-run crash involving a car and a motorcycle in the intersection of Southwest 10th Street and South Dixie Highway in Deerfield Beach. BSO deputies and Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue responded.
The preliminary investigation reveals that the driver of a silver 2016-2019 Hyundai Elantra sedan was traveling eastbound on Southwest 10th Street as Clifford Jackson, the driver of a 2006 Honda CBR 1000 motorcycle, was heading westbound on the same road. When the driver of the Hyundai entered the intersection and made a left turn to head north on South Dixie Highway, the driver turned directly into the path of the motorcyclist.
The motorcycle struck the passenger side of the car in a sideswipe collision, and Jackson was thrown to the ground. The driver of the vehicle continued north on South Dixie Highway. Paramedics transported Jackson to the hospital. On March 23, doctors pronounced Jackson deceased at Broward Health North.
Anyone with information on the driver or vehicle involved in this hit-and-run crash is asked to contact BSO THI Detective Michael Wiley at 954-321-4841 or submit a tip through the SaferWatch app. If tipsters wish to remain anonymous, they can contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at browardcrimestoppers.org. Tipsters can also dial **TIPS (8477) from any cellphone in the United States.
