25-Year-Old Antonia Creek Killed On Florida Highway

Helping people was part of Antonia Creek’s DNA, according to family and friends. It ended up costing the 25-year-old Boynton Beach mother her life.

Creek was traveling southbound on Interstate 95 near Titusville when she came upon a disabled van stranded in a travel lane and got out to help. A Chevy pickup swerved once to avoid the van and then again to avoid a crash. It struck Creek as she desperately ran toward the interstate’s grass median. She died at the scene.

“Anybody should be applauded for wanting to help somebody,” said a FHP Sergeant. “They just want to help, and there’s nothing wrong with that.”

But much can go wrong when a “good Samaritan” motorist, as FHP called Creek, gets out of their vehicle to assist another on a super-fast highway, especially at night.

“You just have to be careful, but even being careful is no certainty that something may not happen,” a FHP official said. “It only takes one driver who isn’t paying attention or focused on something else for a tragedy to take place.”

A spokesman for the American Automobile Association said, motorists should pull over to the roadway’s shoulder before taking further action. If a stranded vehicle is in the roadway, calling 911 may be the best approach.
