A Pahokee woman was found guilty of running a red light and causing the death of a passenger in her car during a Belle Glade crash, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
The 26-year old was ordered by a judge to pay a $1,106 fine, attend eight hours of aggressive driving school and had her driver’s license suspended for six months.
Police said the woman was driving a 2011 Chevy Malibu northbound on Northwest 16th Street with two passengers, including a 23-year-old from Broward County.
At the intersection of Northwest 16th Street, a Ram 3500 crashed into the side of the woman’s Malibu after the Malibu ran a red light, throwing the 23-year old woman from the car, police said. She landed under a 2015 Chrysler that was stopped at the red light.
The driver and second passenger in the car were taken to a hospital with minor injuries, police said. The 23-year old woman later died from her injuries at St. Mary’s Medical Center.
None of the women in the Malibu were wearing seat belts, police said.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving a Chevy Malibu that ran a red light, which ultimately, resulted in the death of a passenger.
