STATEMENT FROM POLICE CHIEF ON NOV. 25 FATAL CRASH IN RIVIERA BEACH
RIVIERA BEACH, FL. (Nov. 27, 2022) – I have been informed that there are posts circulating on various social media platforms of a possible police pursuit related to the November 25 fatality of a motorcyclist. As you are aware, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is conducting an investigation into the crash on behalf of the Riviera Beach Police Department.
It is only from a thorough, prompt, complete, impartial investigation in which we have confidence to give you, the community, accurate facts related to this incident. It would be disrespectful to the deceased, passenger on the motorcycle, their families, police officers involved and the public at large to provide information without the investigation being complete. We can share with you that the motorcyclist and passenger were not connected to any police activity.
Updates on the case will be provided when permissible. -Riviera Beach Police Chief Josh Lewis
