A family of eight, including seven young children, died on a remote Palm Beach County road in a head-on collision. They were on their way to an end-of-summer vacation, a family member and the Florida Highway Patrol said.
A 39-year-old was driving her 2016 Toyota 4 Runner eastbound on Boynton Beach Highway when an oncoming vehicle veered into her lane, Florida Highway Patrol authorities said.
A woman from Riviera Beach, and her four children were all killed, her brother, told The Post.
Another relative and her three children also perished in the crash. The Florida Highway Patrol declined to name them because of the wishes of their immediate family.
“It’s a tragedy I wouldn’t wish on anyone else,” a Florida Highway Patrol Lieutenant told The Post.
Palm Beach County Police department listed the other victims as a 22-year-old, a 12-year-old and 4-year-old. The Florida Highway Patrol authorities did not provide details about the relationships between the victims.
The driver and sole occupant of the other car, a 38-year-old of Coconut Creek also died.
The crash happened in a remote part of Boynton Beach about 130 miles west of the Wilton Manors border.
