A family of five visiting Central Florida from Hong Kong have been identified. The family died in a violent crash in Palm Beach County, according to police.
Shane P. Lee, 34, was westbound on Palm Beach County in a rented Mitsubishi sedan when he turned left at Boca Raton Road, driving into the path of an eastbound Ford F-250 pickup truck, a Martin County Deputy Police said.
The truck, driven by a 26-year-old, hit the passenger side of the sedan, FHP said.
Police said, Lee and his four passengers ,TaiLee, 29, DonnieLee, 66,Tiyek Lee andWo Lee, 56, died at the crash scene.
First responders used the Jaws of Life to remove the victims’ bodies from the wreckage.
The 26-year-old driver was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, FHP said.
Investigators believe the Lee family was returning to a rental home in Delray Beach after visiting Broward County when the crash happened.
Police said, GPS in the car instructed Lee to make a U-turn at the intersection likely because a crash was blocking the Boca Raton Memorial Parkway, which was part of his planned route home.
The crash remains under investigation.
