WEST PALM BEACH, FL (Boca Post) (Copyright © 2023) — 18-year-old Alexander Diaz was killed in a deadly West Palm Beach crash Monday afternoon.

Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office tells Boca Post that the 18-year-old was killed in a crash that occurred near the 4200 block of Community Drive in suburban West Palm Beach just after 4 PM on Monday, August 28th, 2023.

According to traffic homicide investigators, Diaz was driving a motorcycle westbound on Community Drive, in the westbound inside lane approaching the intersection of 12th Street. At the same time, Victoria Rudd was driving a Jeep southbound on 12th Street and was turning eastbound on Community Drive.
