DEERFIELD BEACH, FL – Detectives with the Broward Sheriff’s Office Traffic Homicide Unit are investigating a single-vehicle motorcycle crash that left a 68-year-old man dead in Deerfield Beach Saturday evening.
According to authorities, at approximately 6:00 p.m., Saturday, March 5, Broward Sheriff’s Deerfield Beach District deputies and Broward Fire Rescue responded to a single-vehicle crash involving a motorcycle near the 1200 block of South Military Trail. A preliminary investigation revealed that Rudy Dipietro, 68, of Deerfield Beach, was traveling southbound on a 2022 Harley-Davidson motorcycle on South Military Trail.
