SUBURBAN LAKE WORTH, Fla. -- A Palm Springs man died Sunday before noon after colliding his motorcycle with a vehicle in suburban Lake Worth.
Armando Garcia, 20, was traveling northbound in the center lane of South Military Trail on his Suzuki motorcycle around 11:43 a.m. when he struck the rear driver's side of a four-door Ford driven by Howard George Nelson, 72, according to an accident report.
