The victim was identified as 27-year-old Kristina Spadavecchia of Lighthouse Point. Spadavecchia collided with a vehicle that ran a red light at Southwest 18th Street and Powerline Road.
That vehicle was being driven by 42-year-old Vanessa Castor of Parkland. While Spadavecchia was traveling north on Powerline road with a group of other motorcyclists, for unknown reasons, Castor ran a red light while headed east through the intersection.

Motorcycle Accidents in Boca Raton
The potential for a motor vehicle collision poses a risk to everyone on the roadways in Florida. However, collisions that involve motorcycles can be especially devastating. Motor bikes do not have the same safety features as most other four-wheeled vehicles. Motorcycles, being much lighter and smaller than the trucks and cars that may collide with them, expose their riders to a much more likely possibility of severe or fatal injuries.
