Motorcyclist in hospital after crashing into Camaro in Greenacres last night
A 23-year-old Royal Palm Beach man is in the hospital with serious injuries after slamming his motorcycle into a car in Greenacres Thursday night, Palm Beach County Sheriffs officials report.
Adam Leighton Castle was taken to Delray Beach Medical Centers trauma unit where authorities say he is in critical condition.
The crash happened at 10:32 p.m. near the intersection of South Jog Road and Purdy Lane. According to the preliminary investigation, Castle was on a Kawasaki motorcycle headed north on Jog Road at an extremely high rate of speed approaching the intersection when he hit the right passenger side corner of a Chevy Camaro.
The impact caused the Camaro to spin and the motorcycle to flip and then slide for 530 feet north along Jog Road, the report said. The Camaros driver, Dorotea J. Velasquez, 60, of Greenacres was not injured. The report does not detail Castles injuries or whether he was wearing a helmet.

Update for Adam Castle 11/01/13
Still in Trauma ICU
Neurologist came to see him and based on his response to commands and CT scan, he is stable for his brain injury:-)
Still critical for everything else!!
Not as good a day as yesterday:-(
He had the procedure to install a vena cava filter to stop blood clots reaching his lungs/brain, all seemed to go well with that.
A little later he started to run very high heart rate, between 150-155 while he was sedated...Lots of different things being done to see why this was happening. Pain, dehydration etc. So he was not brought out of sedation for most of the day because of this.
Around 6pm they brought him out of sedation, and his heart rate seemed to get a little better around 130 bpm. He followed all commands with little problems! I showed him a photo of Cheeky(his cat) and asked him if he could smile, and he gave a really cute lobsided smile(still has breathing tube in)
His thyroid is being tested because his helmet strap may have caused some bruising or damage, which may contribute to high heart rate, will find out results tomorrow.
His heart rate had dropped to around 120 bpm later, so crossing fingers it was something as minor as just being dehydrated!!
Tomorrow, if his heart rate has settled down, they can start weaning him off ventilator...Please pray hard for this, I know he wants to be able to talk to us!!!
Still running low grade fever.
Medical bills are starting to come in, and just the trauma hawk airlift and 1 of the surgeons, it is over $20,000!!! Adam had no insurance:(
So we are working on some fundraising events/website etc to raise money!! I will be posting that as soon as it is set up!
Love you all, keep the prayers coming.
