A Royal Palm Beach teenager was killed in a wreck that injured seven other residents near the border of Martin and Broward counties, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
Travice Bernard, 15, was thrown from a SUV that overturned on Hobe Sound in Martin County, authorities said. The right rear tire of the 2002 Toyota SUV blew out and the driver, a 40-year-old lost control. The SUV flipped and Bernard, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected. The teen was pronounced dead at the scene.
The seven other people in the SUV were taken to a hospital. Kenneth Reid, 72; Mavalyn Reid, 66; and Rupert Stone, 51, suffered serious injuries. Moseley; Dean Myles, 35; Charlena Philome, 13 and Tiyana Cunningham, 13, sustained minor injuries.
Only Moseley and Myles were wearing seat belts, records show.
Florida Highway Patrol authorities say the boy is from Delray Beach, and spelled his first name “Travis.” However, an obituary published in The Post says he is from Royal Palm Beach.
Authorities are investigating the crash.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious truck accident involving a pedestrian, which ultimately, resulted in head injuries. We wish the victim a speedy recovery and hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. 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.”
