According to a preliminary crash report, a 21-year-old man, who was involved in the crash that killed four people in the Delray Beach, had told investigators that he tried swerving to avoid traffic prior to hitting their minivan.
The driver also made it known to Delray Beach investigators that his 2010 Chevy Silverado gas pedal had become stuck moments before he began attempting to dodge other vehicles on Federal Highway near where crash had happened south of Linton Boulevard.
The crash had killed Rose Walter Scott, 44, of Riviera Beach, her sister, Caroline Canvass, 40, of Port Salerno; and her two kids, Martinez Scott, 8 and Belemar Scott, 11. The post reported that they were in South Florida to visit their family.
Delray Beach police traffic homicide investigators went back to the crash site close to South Federal Highway and Lamat Avenue to recreate the crash scene.
A police spokeswoman also said that investigators are still looking into whether mechanical failure was caused the crash, adding that it may take months before a final determination as regards to the cause of the crash will be made.
Police stressed that the investigation still remains active and that if any arrest is made, would come only when the investigation is completed.
