In a heart-wrenching incident that unfolded on Tuesday night, a motorcyclist lost their life in a tragic accident, sending shockwaves through our tight-knit community. The Broward Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating the incident, and our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends affected by this devastating loss.
The accident occurred at the intersection of Sample Road and South Dixie Highway at around 9 p.m. It was a moment that changed everything for the victim, 41-year-old Lech Podowski, who was driving a 2007 Mercedes S550 sedan in the westbound lanes of Sample Road.

Simultaneously, an unidentified man was on his 2004 Kawasaki EX-250F motorcycle in the eastbound lanes of the intersection, preparing to make a left turn northbound onto Dixie Highway. Tragically, the motorcycle collided with the Mercedes, leaving the motorcyclist severely injured.

Paramedics rushed to the scene and transported the injured motorcyclist to Broward Health North Medical Center. Despite their best efforts, the motorcyclist was pronounced dead just after 9:30 p.m., marking a somber end to the evening.
