A fifth teenager has died after a devastating car crash that had killed four other High School students, officials said.
A 17-year old was pronounced dead, succumbing to injuries suffered in the accident, according to Florida Highway Patrol.
Four other High School students in Palm Beach County, a 18-year-old boy, a 14-year old girl, a 17-year old girl, and a 15-year old boy also died in the horrific crash.
“They had just gone out for the night. Just a normal night, and then this happened,” the brother said at his sibling’s wake.
Florida Highway Patrol identified a 55-year old as the driver.
A 34-year old man said he was told by several of his brother’s friends that they were in another car racing the teens when their vehicle slammed into a SUV.
Police are still investigating and haven’t yet declared the accident to be the result of a drag race, Florida Highway Patrol officials.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving two vehicles, which ultimately, resulted in the death of five teenagers. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident so that the family and friends of the teenager can have a closure. 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.”
