Woman run over and over on I-95 was on a first date with man on motorcycle, lawyer says

A woman who was run over several times on I-95 early Friday was on a first date, and somehow fell off a motorcycle, according to her family.

Jennifer St. Clair, who was 33, was picked up by a man on a motorcycle Thursday night. They were headed to downtown Delray Beach for a night on the town.

The man, who has yet to be identified, picked up St. Clair on a motorcycle. She rode on the back.

They met online.

“That’s all the family knows, that she was on a date with a fellow, they believe they met online somehow,” said the family’s attorney, Todd Falzone. “Two other couples, who were also on motorcycles, also went along.”

The tragic incident, which happened just south of Atlantic Boulevard in Pompono Beach, is being investigated as a traffic homicide, Florida Highway Patrol officials said.

Several drivers accidentally ran over St. Clair around 1:30 a.m. Friday. Some drivers stopped and stayed, and others kept driving, according to FHP.

Some witnesses they had seen a man on a motorcycle standing near Sinclair’s body, and then take off, Local10. reported.

“This is every parent’s worst nightmare,” Falzone said. “It’s gonna take a lot of work to figure out what happened, but we’re going to bring those accountable to justice.”

According Sinclair’s family, the driver of that motorcycle has not been located. FHP would not comment on the case because it is “still under investigation.”

The family plans on asking the public for help Tuesday morning in reporting any information.

“Someone saw it happen. Someone saw her earlier that night. Whoever she was with has some answers,” Shannon Sewell, Sinclair’s longtime friend, wrote on Facebook. “She did not deserve this. Her family and friends do not deserve this.”

Sinclair, a former server at Cooper’s Hawk restaurant in Coconut Creek , was described as a “ferocious animal lover” and someone who always made “an immediate impact.”

“We are struggling through shock and grief over the passing of Jennifer St. Clair,” her coworkers collectively wrote in an email to the Miami Herald. “She was always there for her friends and fellow team members, always smiling and saying hello.”

A candlelit ceremony will be held at the restaurant at 10 p.m. Wednesday. A celebration of life service will be 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday . at the Joseph A. Scarano Funeral Home in Davie.

Family and friends say Sinclair was an “adventurer” with an “infectious smile. ” The “passionate hugger” and “silly” woman was a “bright light” that helped friends navigate grief and divorce.

On her abdomen was a tattoo: “Live the life you love, love the life you lived.”

“Somebody knew where she was going. Somebody knows who she was with. Somebody has to know who she was seeing,” posted Mitchell Sabanosh on Sinclair’s Facebook page.

“Light the pitch forks and torches and get justice for her.”
