The 29-year old’s blood-alcohol level was twice the legal limit when she slammed her car into a Toyota Corolla and killed her passenger, and injured the driver of the Toyota Corolla, Florida Highway Patrol recently released records show.

A Judge placed her on in-house arrest as she waits for trial. She will be allowed to care for a relative during her confinement.

A witness told city police that the 29-year old was speeding on Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard heading toward the intersection with Okeechobee Boulevard. She was hanging out the window yelling and waving her arms, the witness said.

She then lost control of the car, which turned counterclockwise and crashed  into a cement light pole, the witness said.

When police arrived, her 33-year old passenger had already died. The 29-year old driver was unresponsive in the driver’s seat. Police records show she was driving at least 49 mph in a 40-mph zone.

Results of a blood test show the 29-year old had marijuana in her system, as well as drugs used as sedatives and anxiety medication.

Comments:

Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious two-vehicle accident which ultimately, killed one person and resulted in injuries to another person.

Teen Driver Responsible For Fatal Lantana Wreck Gets Charged

A teen was driving a 2005 Cadillac on Overlook Road near Hypoluxo Road when he crashed into another vehicle.

car-accident-stockphoto-0524-inquirer.net_

He was driving at about 80 mph in a 35-mph zone and lost control of the car, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s investigators said.  The car traveled on the eastern shoulder, side-swiped a tree, hit a second car, and then rotated counter-clockwise while moving north.

A 19-year old, of suburban Lake Worth, was sitting in the right back seat and was thrown from the car.   Two other passengers were injured, but survived.

A mix of alcohol and marijuana likely impaired the 18-year-old driver, causing him to lose control of his car, and abruptly end the life of one of his passengers.

A Judge ordered the teen held on $160,000 bail. If he posts bond, he won’t be allowed to drink alcohol, take drugs, or drive, and he’ll have to wear an ankle monitor, FHP said.

The Lantana man faces a charge of DUI manslaughter, DUI causing serious bodily injury and vehicle homicide.  The teen’s blood alcohol content was .089, the affidavit says. The state’s blood-alcohol legal limit for driving is 0.08.

Comments:

Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving a teen that resulted in the death of one person and injured others. We wish the victims 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.
