WESTON, FL – The Broward Sheriff’s Office said its traffic homicide unit detectives are investigating a fatal motorcycle accident that occurred in Weston.

An investigation determined that the operator of the motorcycle was headed north on Bonaventure Boulevard and failed to negotiate a turn as the roadway curved right.
