Authorities say a 35-year-old was intoxicated when he crashed his white 2006 Mercedes-Benz C280 into a woman crossing to the south side of the bridge on East Ocean Avenue.

The women, 31-year-old Mary George of Boca Raton, was wearing an orange reflective vest, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. Mary died at the scene.

The 35-year-old was ordered to be held in the Palm Beach County Jail in lieu of a $100,000 bond. He cannot drive or drink alcohol as the case moves through the court system.

A man who witnessed the wreck told FHP investigators that he saw the 35-year-old step out of his car and say, β€œshe just walked out in front of me.”

Records indicate that the 35-year-old was driving at least 60 mph, twice the posted speed limit on the bridge.

A few hours after the wreck, the 35-year old driver’s blood-alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit, records show.


Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. β€œThis is a serious accident resulting in a fatality. We 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.
