The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office tells Boca Post that just after 12 AM on Sunday, October 30th, 2022, deputies responded to the area of Military Trail and Wallis road, an area just west of PBIA.

Responding PBSO district deputies and Palm Beach County Fire Rescue found a Toyota Highlander and a Kawasaki ZX10R motorcycle have been involved in a serious accident. The motorcyclist, Kenju Konn, 30, of Greenacres, was declared deceased at the scene. The two occupants of the Highlander were transported to a local hospital.

PBSO Traffic Homicide Unit detectives were notified and began an investigation into the incident. Detectives tell us that the Highlander, driven by 44-year-old Amelfi Gonzalez, was turning left from northbound Military Trail to travel west on Wallis Road. Meanwhile, Konn was traveling on his motorcycle southbound on Military Trail in the center lane. As the SUV was turning left, it turned into the path of the motorcycle, causing the collision.

Investigators indicate that Gonzalez may have been under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol and note that charges may be pending.
