A three-car crash just outside the West Palm Beach city limits has killed 88-year-old Yefim Bogomolsky, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s authorities said.
The accident, involved a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro, a 2004 Suzuki Aerio, and a 2017 Volkswagen Passat. It happened at the Okeechobee Boulevard near the intersection of North Military Trail.
The driver of the Chevrolet Camaro lost control while heading east on Okeechobee Boulevard. Then it hit a road median. The driver swerved right and then hit a Suzuki Aerio which was headed west. This sent the Aerio over the median and it crashed into the driver’s side of a Volkswagen Passat.
None of the other two drivers was injured in the crash, which killed Yefim Bogomolsky, the sheriff’s office said. Records indicate he was wearing a seat belt at the time, as was his passenger.
Yefim Bogomolsky died after the crash while his passenger, 87-year-old Lidia Bogomolsky sustained minor injuries.
