Fort Lauderdale Teen Loses Toes after Motorcycle Crash

A motorcycle accident occurred in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Friday, April 3rd, resulting in a teenage boy losing his toes following the event. The 14-year-old boy, Renard Charstil, was injured in the collision while riding on the back of a motorcycle with a 15-year-old driver. Charstil underwent surgery on Monday and remains in intensive care with moderate injuries.

Witnesses say that the two male teenagers attempted to pass another van on the road before crashing into another driver on Northwest 18th Avenue. The 14-year-old also had to have part of his foot amputated in a separate surgery following the accident. Despite losing his toes and part of his foot, the young boy is expected to fully recover.

The 15-year-old driver of the motorcycle also sustained minor injuries and was taken to Broward Health Medical Center. The two teenagers were riding a pocket bike and hit the windshield of the other driver before they were transported to the hospital. The other vehicle was not cited in the accident and remained at the scene following the incident.
