Man dies when car skids into back of stopped flatbed truck

A 38-year-old man suffered fatal injuries when his Mercedes-Benz hydroplaned into the back of a stopped truck at a Boynton Beach intersection Tuesday morning, police said.

Arshia Poursartip, of Boynton Beach, was rushed to Delray Medical Center, where he died, said Stephanie Slater, spokeswoman for the police department.

Poursartip was driving his Mercedes west on Boynton Beach Boulevard when he skidded on the wet road while trying to stop and slammed the passenger’s side of his car into the back end of a flatbed truck, according to police.

A sobbing woman who answered the phone Tuesday night at Poursartip’s home asked a reporter to call back after Poursartip’s sister arrived from out of town.
