A couple was killed when a stolen Lexus driven by two teens plowed into their car at the intersection of River Park and Lakewood Park Rd in St. Lucie County in Florida.
The 38-year-old man and his 32-year-old wife had been married just over a year. They were traveling in a Chevy Malibu at the time of the crash.
Police say the underage driver of the Lexus ran a red light at dangerous speed while driving southbound on River Park Rd.
It’s believed the male passenger of the Malibu was killed on impact.
His wife, who was driving, was taken to hospital but died a short time later.
The two teenagers, who police believe stole the 4WD Lexus during a home invasion, remained at the crash scene, until FHP arrived.
The shocked parents of the male passenger comforted each other while they took in the horrific scene.
The pair spent 20 minutes on Lakewood Park trying to come to terms with what had happened.
An acting Superintendent said speaking to the man’s parents was one of the hardest things he had done in his career.
“I’ve had to stand at the intersection with the parents of one of the deceased, I’ve been able to explain how it has occurred but not why”.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving a couple, which ultimately, resulted in fatal injuries. 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.
