Deputy hurt in left-turn crash caused by pickup truck driver 

WEST PALM BEACH, FL – A deputy operating a motorcycle was taken to a hospital for his injuries after he was hit by a pickup truck driver turning left Wednesday. 

This collision happened before 7 a.m. at the Jog Road and Pioneer Road junction, CBS 12 reported. As the deputy came closer to the intersection, that’s when the driver of the 2023 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck — a 52-year-old man (going east on Pioneer) — failed to yield to traffic and collided with the deputy’s motorcycle. 

The motorcyclist then struck the front of the Chevrolet Silverado, leading the motorcycle to roll over and hit a third vehicle — a 2023 Mazda CX5, which was “on the inside lane of Jog Road.” 

The Mazda driver — a 33-year-old man — and the pickup truck driver escaped injuries, while the deputy was transported to St. Mary’s Medical Center for treatment of unspecified wounds. 

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office has not said whether the pickup truck driver will be cited or charged for failing to yield.
