A 54-year-old Boca Raton woman was confirmed died when she was thrown from her vehicle after a crash on Interstate 95 in northern Broward County, the Florida Highway Patrol and witnesses said.
Deborah Hillary lost control of her 2005 Kia Sorento in the southbound lanes of the interstate just north of Hillsboro Boulevard, just south of Boca Raton, Florida Highway Patrol said.
Hillary was traveling in the left-center lane. Her vehicle swerved to the right, struck a cab and began to rotate clockwise, turning over at least twice. She was thrown from the car as it turned over, Florida Highway Patrol said. She was declared dead at the scene.
The cab driver and another passenger were unconscious after the crash. The FHP said they are in stable condition in a local hospital.
Hillary, who was traveling alone, was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the wreck, Florida Highway Patrol said. Results of tests on whether she was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash were not yet made available.
Florida Highway Patrol officials had not determined the cause of the wreck yet. Its report did not really disclose how fast Hillary was driving when the crash took place.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in a fatality.
