Five were confirmed dead and one injured in a Palm Beach County car crash that took place on Wellington Avenue, Florida Highway Patrol officials said.
The crash happened when a 43-year old Martin County man, whose name police officials refused to released, veered to the wrong side of the Northbound Highway crashing into a Toyota Corolla in which a 35-year old man was driving.
The 43-year old driver’s car rolled over after colliding with the Corolla. H
He was confirmed dead by Palm Beach Sheriff Office and the Florida Highway Patrol officials.
It took the Palm Beach Police authorities several minutes before arriving at the crash scene. “We did our best to revived the driver at the crash scene, but nothing seemed to be working” a police sergeant said in statement.
The Toyota was carrying five occupants. The 35-year old driver was heading to St. Lucie County for a vacation with his wife and three kids. He suffered non-life threatening injuries and was transported to a hospital in Indian River County. His 28-year old wife and his kids all died in Delray Medical Center a few hours later.
FHP is still investigating the cause of the crash to find if the 43-year old was under the influence of alcohol or not.
No charges have been filed yet.
