PBSO deputy hurt in crash on I-95 through Boynton Beach identified

A Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office deputy was injures Tuesday after his unmarked patrol car was hit by a pick-up truck on Interstate 95, according to Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Tim Frith.

Trooper Michael John Taylor, 56, was writing a report while sitting in the emergency lane south of Woolbright Road, when the driver of a pick-up truck hit him, Frith said.

The driver of the 1998 Ford Ranger pick-up truck, identified as Garret Allen Taylor, 42, of West Palm Beach, failed to notice the cars in front of him slowing down in response to flashing lights, Frith said.

Taylor veered to the left to avoid hitting the car in front of him, striking the concrete barrier wall at high speed and bouncing across the highway toward the deputy's 2008 Dodge Charger in the emergency lane, authorities said.

The truck struck the deputy's cruiser and then flipped over.

Both men were taken to Delray Medical Center with serious injuries, Frith said.

The 7:30 a.m. crash slowed southbound traffic until nearly 9 a.m. when the rolled over pick-up truck and the deputy's vehicle were removed from the scene.

Charges are pending against the pick-up truck driver, Frith said.
