A tragic car crash shook Boca Raton to its core when five local teens were killed.
In an interview following the crash, a young woman said, “They were sweet girls, they were young. They didn’t get to go to homecoming, prom. They’re young. It should never have happened to them.”
She’s referring to the crash which took place in Boca Raton. Emily Slosberg, her twin sister Dori and five of their friends were at a bowling alley and decided to get in the car with a 19-year-old driver.
“He put seven of us in the backseat,” crash survivor Emily Slosberg recalled. “I was on a lap and my other friend was on a lap. The driver and his friend put their seatbelts on and started driving down Palmetto Park Road at speeds topping 90 mph. I’ll never forget. At that point I looked, everyone looks scared, but nobody says anything.”
The driver, lost control of his Honda Civic, slamming into a car coming from the opposite direction.
“Seven of us. Five dead, including my twin sister,” Slosberg said. “I woke up on respirator in a hospital. Broken leg, broken pelvis. I can’t speak. I see all my family visiting me, but I don’t see my twin. So I write on my father’s hand, where’s Dori? He hands me a newspaper and I read Dori’s dead.”
FHP on it’s part, has issued a statement urging anyone with relevant information relating to the crash to contact the Florida Highway Patrol.
