23-year-old man of Greenwich Court in West Boca Raton is critically injured following a two car crash on Palmetto Park Road near Toledo Road.
The victim was westbound on Palmetto Park Road, west of Toledo Road, in the outside lane when he was hit by another vehicle. The other vehicle was traveling at a speed well above the posted 50 mph speed limit according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
The roadway was wet from a recent rain shower and the tires on his 2014 Mercedes Benz had low tread depth. He lost control of the car and struck the victim’s car. The impact of the collision caused the victim’s car to mount the raised center median. The right front of the car impacted with a tree and rotated in a counter clockwise direction as it moved in the southwest direction.
The left rear of the car then impacted with a second tree. The vehicle came to rest in the center median against the second impacted tree.
First emergency responders arrived at the site of the crash soon after the accident happened and the victim was transported to Delray Medical Center with serious life-threatening injuries. His current condition cannot be ascertained.
W Palmetto road is partially closed at the moment due to the severity of the crash, causing traffic delays. Vehicles on this route are pulling to the roadside to allow crews work. Some are pulling into nearby side streets. The delay of traffic on this route is due to the severity of the crash. It is best to use an alternative route such as W Mango Road.
Please drive with caution and stay safe.
