Motorcyclist Killed On Miami Street

MIAMI (CBS4) – Traffic homicide detectives are investigating a deadly car crash involving a motorcyclist Wednesday afternoon in Miami.

Chopper 4 over the scene near the intersection of West Flagler & Northwest 44th Street showed a body covered by a sheet and a badly damaged motorcycle and SUV.

Witnesses on the scene tell CBS4 News that the deceased motorcyclist, identified as Ranyel Antonio Rodriguez, 24, was stopped at a light at 47th Street. When the light changed, Rodriguez took off at a high rate of speed and somehow lost control of the bike, slamming into the SUV.

“He looked back and that’s the moment he accelerated again and he hit the car,” said witness Damis Suarez.

Rodriguez’s brother, who was behind him in another car, witnessed the crash.

“He lost control of the motorcycle and he came on top of the sidewalk and crashed into the car. And that’s when he died,” the victim’s brother, Randy Rodriguez, told CBS4’s David Sutta. “I lost him. I have nothing else to say.”

Police say Rodriguez was not wearing a helmet.

“He was a good kid. He never got in trouble,” said family friend Antonio DeLeon. “No more motorcycles. That’s it. They’re bad.”
