A man was improving Tuesday at the hospital after being ejected from a motorcycle last month.
Carlos Montalban, 32, of Delray Beach, was listed in good condition at Lee Memorial Hospital, where he was transported following the accident April 6 on U.S. 41 near Airport Road, officials reported.
At 3:21 a.m., Montalban was riding north on U.S. 41 on a 2003 Honda, which was being driven by Michael Giovanni Agosto, 29, of Homestead, when they collided into the rear of a Honda Civic. The Civic was stopped for traffic and Agosto failed to slow down, the Florida Highway Patrol reported.
