The 20-year old woman was arrested on DUI charges. Test results after the wreck showed she had marijuana and Alprazolam, commonly known as Xanax, in her system.

She was recently booked into the Palm Beach County Jail

Her car crossed over into oncoming traffic on Cain Boulevard near Vista Grand Road, just north of Glades Road, sheriff’s office records indicate.

She crashed into another car injuring the two people inside.  The two victims in the second car were transported to a nearby hospital.

Deputies found the 20-year-old driver trapped in her car. When a deputy spoke with her at Delray Medical Center, she appeared impaired. She smelled of alcohol, had slurred speech and was confused by what had happened, the deputy wrote.

She told officials she couldn’t remember what happened. She said she hadn’t consumed either alcohol or drugs before the crash, only Seroquel, a drug used to treat mood disorders.

She is scheduled to appear before a Palm Beach County judge.


Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving an impaired that injured three people. We wish the victim a speedy recovery and hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
