A man rid­ing an un­li­censed dirt bike was killed Fri­day in a crash near Palm Springs.

Juan S. Salazar, 23, of Lan­tana, was rid­ing east on Me­laleuca Lane on a non­street-le­gal Suzuki dirt bike that did not have safety equip­ment such as lights or mir­rors, ac­cord­ing to the Palm Beach County Sher­iff ’s Of­fice.

He was taken to St. Mary’s Med­i­cal Cen­ter in West Palm Beach, where he died.
