Deborah Eber Killed When Stolen Vehicle Crashes Into Her Car On Delray Highway

A 60-year-old Acreage woman died when a 17-year-old male stole a car at a Jupiter gas station, fled from police, raced down the Delray Highway, ran a red light and slammed into her vehicle, authorities said.

5-761-62427

Deborah Eber was killed at about when her 2016 Toyota Corolla was struck by a 2015 Acura driven by the teen, according to a Palm Beach County sheriff’s report.

The Palm Beach Post is not naming the 17-year old driver, who also resides in Acreage, because he had not been criminally charged as an adult. The Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office will decide whether to file those charges, and there was no indication what those charges would be.

One of Eber’s family members said the family was too distraught to talk about its loss. He said Eber was married with two sons and a daughter and had two grandchildren, with one on the way.

While the PBSO report, posted, covers only the crash, a Palm Beach Gardens police sergeant said his department spotted the car on the Delray Highway after Jupiter police had broadcast that they were searching for a stolen vehicle. The crash occurred moments later, police authorities said.

A Jupiter police spokeswoman said the car was stolen from the Chevron gas station at Alternate State Road A1A and Indiantown Road, just west of the Intracoastal Waterway bridge. She said the owner had walked inside the gas station and left the Acura running.

Officers spotted the stolen Acura traveling west on Indiantown Road and tried to pull it over. The driver did not stop, instead accelerated onto southbound Interstate 95, where officers lost sight of the vehicle. The vehicle later was seen exiting the interstate eastbound on Donald Ross Road.

It traveled south on Central Boulevard into Palm Beach Gardens, whose police department took over the search, the spokeswoman said. The vehicle was spotted traveling west on PGA Boulevard near Florida’s Turnpike.

Eber was declared dead at the scene. She was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, according to a sheriff’s crash report said.

The 17-year-old male and a 14-year-old male in his car both were taken to an undisclosed hospital. The PBSO report said the driver suffered serious injuries and his passenger had minor injuries.

The PBSO report does not indicate that either drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.

Authorities say a mother of the 29-year old, was killed when two teens fleeing in a stolen car ran a red light and slammed into her Chevrolet Malibu along Beeline Highway near Palm Beach Gardens.

“Senseless,” the 29-year old woman said with a sob.

“This was so senseless. She was innocent.”

“She was running errands after work,” her daughter said. “She was shopping. She was on her way home. The road she travels every single day.”

The 60-year-old medical transcriptionist from Acreage was married and a mother of three and grandmother of two, with one on the way.

“We want justice served for her,” her 29-year old daughter said.

Authorities could not immediately provide an update on either the conditions or arrest status of the 17-year-old male they say drove the stolen car, or the 14-year-old male who was a passenger in the car. Both were taken to an undisclosed hospital after the crash, the driver, also an Acreage resident, with serious injuries and his passenger, of Haverhill, with minor injuries.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office said no charges have been filed as the agency investigates the crash. Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens police have not yet said anything about criminal charges in the car theft and chase.

The Palm Beach Post is not naming the teens because neither has not been criminally charged as an adult.

According to authorities, a woman left her Acura running as she stepped inside at a gas station in Jupiter, and the teens jumped in the car and drove off. It sped west to Interstate 95, then east on Donald Ross Road and south on Central Boulevard into Palm Beach Gardens, where police there spotted the car on the Beeline moments before it crashed into the 60-year old woman’s car near Northlake Boulevard, police said.

St. Lucie County police officers on patrol spotted smoke coming from the area and initially thought a house was on fire, according to police reports.

The officers saw the crash and heard someone screaming from inside’s the car of the 19-year old, according to police reports. One officer pulled the 19-year old from the car and dragged him onto a nearby porch, police reports say. Another officer checked the 27-year old man’s car. The man was unconscious and his 21-year-old female passenger was severely injured.  She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers ran back to the car of the 19-year old after it burst into flames and after seeing the 17-year-old boy was trapped in the backseat, police reports say.

An officer unsuccessfully tried to break a side window. Another officer broke the back windshield, grabbed a garden hose from a nearby home and tried to extinguish the fire, according to police reports.

The car became engulfed in flames. An officer cut off the teen’s seatbelt and two officers pulled him from the car, according to police reports.

Meanwhile, the car of the 27-year old caught fire while he was still trapped in the front seat. Other officers and firefighters arrived, put the fire out and pulled him from the front seat, according to police.

They were all taken to a nearby hospital, the post reports.

4-Month-Old Girl Dies After Father Crashes During Car Chase With Martin County Police

A 4-month-old girl died two days after her father crashed into a garbage truck during a chase with Martin County police, who suspected the man of shoplifting food and beer.

images (5)

The 4-months old daughter of a 31-year old Martin County man, died at a nearby hospital, according to police and the Martin County Medical Examiner. The 31-year old also died in the crash.

The man’s 48-year-old mother was treated and released at the hospital. Her name is not being released because criminal charges are pending against her, police said.

Martin County police said they believe the officer followed police policy during the two-minute chase that topped out at about 60 miles per hour and ended with the car bursting into flames.

The incident began when the 31-year old and his mother separately went into a shop. The 31-year old loaded up his cart, left some items and walked out with steak, lobster tails and beer without paying, police said.

An officer pulled up behind the car, a Chevy Malibu, at the intersection of Hobe Sound. The 31-year old man sped up, turned on several side streets and returned to Stuart Avenue. He turned right on Palm City, skidded and slammed into the garbage truck, according to police dashboard camera video.

The driver’s side door slammed into the truck at the end of the two-mile chase. Officers ran to the car, which quickly burst into flames because of a gas leak.

Several officers used handheld fire extinguishers to quell the blaze and realized the 31-year old was dead. They also spotted the 48-year-old woman in the front passenger seat and the 4-month-old in a car seat.

Officers pulled the woman from a car. It took police and firefighters some time to pull the baby out of the car, police said.

Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in fatalities.
