A suspected drunk driver rear-ended a milk truck in Palm Beach County leaving one person injured, police said.
The black Mercedes Benz was traveling north on Palm Beach County when the 33-year-old female driver slammed into the back of a truck that was double-parked.
The truck driver was making a delivery inside a nearby storefront at the time of the crash, police said. The car then spun out of control and smashed into a tree.
The driver and her 35-year-old male passenger were rushed to Delray Medical Center where the passenger is being treated after suffering a severe injury.
The woman, who is in stable condition, is suspected to have been drunk at the time of the accident and is under arrest with charges pending, a Florida Highway Patrol said.
The identity of the victim has not been released pending family notification.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is an accident involving a Mercedes Benz, which ultimately, caused non life threatening injuries to one person. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident so that the victim can get justice. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
