Steven B. Ruttenberg, a 67-year-old Boynton Beach man, has been confirmed dead after crashing his car into a 2016 Honda Accord on Interstate 95 in West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Police Department and the Florida Highway Patrol said.
Steven B. Ruttenberg was driving his 2013 Hyundai Elantra southbound on I-95 near Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard when he lost control of his car, veered off the roadway and hit the passenger side of a 2016 Honda Accord, driven by a 34-year old, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report.
