A 62 year old man died in an accident after supposedly suffering a seizure while driving.
The West Palm Beach Police are investigating a crash that occurred at the intersection of Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard and North Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach. Four vehicles were involved in the crash.
The accident occurred when a 62 year old man was driving his Toyota Camry on the eastbound lane of Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard. He was appeared to be speeding when he approached the intersection of North Dixie Highway and rammed the car ahead of him in the rear.
The impact propelled the second car forward as it collided with a third car. The third car also slammed against the driver’s side of a fourth car before coming to rest. The Toyota Camry, which was still in motion, collided with the third car on its left side before screeching to a halt.
The driver of the Camry was pronounced dead on the scene. The driver in the second car sustained fractures to his ribs and right arm, as well as a facial injury. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment. The drivers of the other vehicles sustained minor injuries from the crash.
According to Police reports, the family of the 62 year old man said he suffered from seizures occasionally and was not medically fit to be behind the wheels of a car.
Emergency services were on the scene to clear the wreckage which occupied a major intersection.
Although it is not yet confirmed if it was a seizure that led to the accident, the West Palm Beach Police are still conducting an investigation into the crash.
