A horrific head-on crash has resulted in a triple fatality in Palm Beach County.
Two innocent lives were claimed when an 18-year-old male driver, who also died, crashed his car into another vehicle at high speed while driving down the wrong side of Wellington Rd.
The 18-year-old Delray Beach man died at the scene, as did a 33-year-old woman in the second vehicle and her 41-year-old male passenger, both from Wellington.
Emergency services arrived at the scene and closed the road for several hours as they worked to clean the road.
FHP officials said the speeding driver and two occupants of the second vehicle couldn’t be saved.
“We are urging anyone who may have witnessed erratic driving on Wellington Road to contact police,” FHP said.
Witnesses confirmed high speed and erratic driving caused the horrific crash which unfolded feet away from a third vehicle involved. “He hit the back of us and we spun,” a 25-year old said. “I’ve never been in something like this before in my life.”
“We were the first out of the car, so we jumped out and sprinted to go to one of the cars but we could see they didn’t make it”, the 25-year old said.
The accident is still under investigation.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving a head-on crash, which ultimately, resulted in fatal injuries to three people. We 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.”
