The accident happened at the intersection of Jupiter Island Road (Route 152) and Port Salerno Road, according to a media release from The Florida Highway Patrol officials.
FHP Troopers said, a 32-year-old man was driving a green Chevrolet pickup west on Port Salerno Road and failed to stop at a stop sign, according to the release. The Chevrolet truck collided with an Isuzu SUV, driven by a 27-year-old, that was heading north on Route 152 passing Ocean Breeze Park Road.
The two vehicles then crashed into an embankment with the 32-year-old driver’s vehicle continuing to travel up the embankment until it hit a tree.
The Isuzu SUV was hit on the passenger side and came to final rest on the grass shoulder.
