Motorcyclist died 12 days after hit-and-run crash in Deerfield Beach

A man who was hit by a driver while riding his motorcycle in Deerfield Beach last month died 12 days after the crash, and investigators are still searching for the driver.

Clifford Jackson, 57, was riding a 2006 Honda CBR1000RR motorcycle shortly before 10:30 p.m. on March 11, in the area of Southwest 10th Street and South Dixie Highway in Deerfield Beach when the driver of a Hyundai Elantra entered into Jackson’s path in the intersection, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said Thursday.

The unidentified driver, while attempting to make a left turn onto South Dixie Highway, crashed into Jackson in the intersection, causing Jackson’s motorcycle to crash into the passenger side of the Hyundai, the Sheriff’s Office said. The Hyundai driver fled after Jackson was knocked off his motorcycle.

Jackson was pronounced dead at Broward Health North on March 23, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Detectives believe the car involved was a 2016 to 2019 silver Hyundai Elantra. The car’s passenger-side mirror and both doors on the passenger side were damaged in the crash, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Anyone with information on the driver or vehicle is asked to contact BSO Traffic Homicide Det. Michael Wiley at 954-321-4841, submit a tip through the SaferWatch app or anonymously contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477), online at browardcrimestoppers.org or by dialing **TIPS (8477) from any cell phone.
