A 30-year-old man was killed in a motorcycle crash and the other driver is now charged with DUI manslaughter.

The crash happened in Wellington at about 8:20 Sunday night.

An investigator with the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said Sean Cole of Loxahatchee was driving a Harley-Davidson northbound on Greenview Shores near Wellington Trace.

At the same time, Mateo Raymundo Valentin of Wellington was headed southbound in a Toyota Tacoma SUV and he began to turn left, into the motorcycle’s right of way.

According to the arrest report, Cole “was unable to maneuver to avoid impacting” the SUV, and hit its right side.

Cole was ejected from the motorcycle and landed on the road. He was taken to the hospital and died an hour later.

The arrest report said a PBSO deputy reported Raymundo Valentin having “red, bloodshot, glossy eyes” so a DUI investigator was called to the scene.

That investigator “smelled the odor of an unknown alcoholic beverage coming from his breath and person, noticed he was unsteady while walking, had red, bloodshot, and glassy eyes,” and said Raymundo Valentin “stated he had consumed alcoholic beverages.”

The report added, Raymundo Valentin “stated that he had consumed one beer” at home and claimed the motorcycle “was traveling at a high rate of speed. He also indicated that he was unlicensed and has never possessed a Florida driver's license.”

Raymundo Valentin, 31, was also charged with driving without a license.

He was booked at 2:46 a.m. Monday. Bond was set at $35,000, and he remains at the Main Detention Center.
