The wreck took place in May in Lake Park, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.

LAKE PARK — A 58-year-old West Palm Beach man is dead after his motorized bicycle crashed with a car in Lake Park, throwing him to the ground, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.

Steven Kinnersley sustained a head injury in the May 13 crash on Greenbriar Court, just east of 10th Street, the sheriff’s office said. Palm Beach County Fire Rescue took him to St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, and he died from his injuries Thursday night at the Trustbridge care center in West Palm Beach.

Just before 9 a.m. May 13, Winner Duversot of Palm Beach Gardens was eastbound in a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder on Greenbriar Court, the sheriff’s office said in a report released Monday. It said Kinnersley rode through a stop sign, then missed the “no right turn” sign and traveled westbound, the wrong way, on Greenbriar.

Duversot’s front bumper crashed into Kinnersley, according to the report. As of Monday, there was no record either of charges or traffic tickets against him.

Reached by telephone Monday, Duversot, 19, said Kinnersley came out of nowhere. He said he was on his way home to get something for school when Kinnersley’s bike crashed into his car.

“I was shocked,” he said. “I was like, ‘Where did he come from?’ ”

Duversot said he did not sustain injuries and that his Nissan Pathfinder’s front mirror was cracked.

Attempts to reach Kinnersley’s family Monday were unsuccessful.
