Several people were hospitalized after a multi-vehicle crash near NW Avenue F and NW 14th Street in Belle Glade.
Multiple vehicles and a motorcycle were involved in the crash, according to Palm Beach County Fire Rescue. A 2009 Acura TSX turned left onto NW 14th Street from NW Avenue F in front of a 2011 Ford F-150, the sheriff’s office said.
