A 23-year-old man was killed in a crash just outside the West Palm Beach city limits, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.
The young man whose identity is yet to be revealed reportedly was driving southbound on North Military Trail in a 2004 four-door Mazda when the accident happened.
Authorities say he ran a red light. After that he slammed into a 2012 four-door Hyundai. The Hyundai was turning off Shenandoah Drive, near Bear Lakes Middle School.
The Mazda driver, who was not wearing a seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Hyundai driver, 26-year-old Eleanor Vernon of Wellington, and her passenger, a 26-year-old from Pensacola, sustained serious injuries in the crash. Both were wearing seatbelts, records indicate.
First emergency responders arrived at the site of the crash soon after the accident happened. The victims were transported to the Delray Medical Center for treatment.
The crash is still being investigated, police said. This story will be updated as more information is released.
This route is partially closed due to the severity of the crash, causing traffic delays. It is best to use alternative routes. It is best to take Military Trail or I-95 as your alternate routes.
Delray Beach attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate accident with a death and 2 others injured: “This is a tragic accident here in Palm Beach County. We hope for the families sake that it can be quickly discovered what the cause was. It was reported that the driver of the Mazda was at fault. We hope that Ms. Vernon and her passenger work with an experienced trial lawyer. Please be careful whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation to find out what are your rights”.
