An Indian River County woman was found guilty of running a red light and causing the death of two passengers in her car during a Belle Glade crash, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
The 36-year-old, was ordered by a judge to pay a $1,106 fine, attend eight hours of aggressive driving school and had her driver’s license suspended for six months.
Police said, the woman was driving a 2011 Chevy Malibu northbound on Northwest 16th Street with two passengers, including a 13-year-old from Broward County.
At the intersection of Northwest 16th Street, a Ram 3500 crashed into the side of the woman’s Malibu after she ran a red light, throwing her two passengers from the car, police and the Florida Highway Patrol said. They both landed under a 2015 Chrysler, according to police, which was stopped at the red light.
The Indian River County woman and another woman in the Ram were taken to a hospital with minor injuries, police officials said. The passengers in the Malibu later died from their injuries at St. Mary’s Medical Center.
None of the women in the Malibu were wearing seat belts, police officials said.
