On February 22, 2013, a motorcycle accident took the life of Frank Lee, a renowned tattoo artist in Fort Lauderdale, FL. The 39-year-old, whose given name was Frank Alphonso, was on his way home after finishing a tattoo earlier in the evening. While driving a red Kawasaki motorcycle, Lee stopped at a traffic light at the intersection of Oakland Park Blvd. and North Federal Highway. When the light turned green, Lee attempted to turn left, but the driver of a 2004 Subaru moved forward at the same time. Police said it appears that Lee may have tried to avoid the crash by toppling his motorcycle, but he was struck as the bike slid across the roadway. Doctors pronounced the tattoo artist dead at Broward Health Medical Center.
