A driver ran a stop sign at the intersection of Hall and Northlake Boulevard, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s authorities said.
A 63-year-old man and his 17-year-old son are both dead after driving through a stop sign and crashing with a tractor-trailer in The Acreage, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.
James Courtney was driving a 1999 Toyota sedan north on Hall Boulevard, the sheriff’s office said. He didn’t stop at the stop sign at the intersection of Northlake Boulevard and collided with a westbound tractor-trailer, driven by a 38-year-old man who lives west of the West Palm Beach city limits.
Both vehicles ended up in a wooded area on the north side of Northlake west of Hall Boulevard. The tractor-trailer flipped, but the driver was not seriously injured.
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue authorities pronounced Courtney and his 17-year old son dead at the scene. Records indicate they lived about 4 miles east off Northlake Boulevard, records show.
The Florida Highway Patrol said, they are still trying to determine if either drugs or alcohol had a part to play in the crash and urge anyone with any information concerning the car crash to contact the Florida Highway Patrol as soon as possible.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in fatalities.
