Car Crash In Port Salerno Kills Two Teens And Injured 5 Others
The two Palm Beach County teenagers that were killed in a crash attended Martin County High School.
The car crash occurred on Port Salerno, east of Indiantown. A 16-year-old was speeding west on Port Salerno in a 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier, troopers said. As the car crossed over a railroad crossing it flew into the air.
When the car landed, the 16-year-old lost control, went off the right side of the road and overcorrected, veering left. The car went off the left side of the road, struck a Toyota Sequoia then overturned. It landed on its roof on the road.
The 16-year-old driver and 16-year old passenger were killed in the crash. A 14-year-old and 15-year old back-seat passengers were critical.
The driver of the Toyota Sequoia was also taken to the Martin County General Hospital.
A back-seat passenger in the Toyota Sequoia, a 13-year-old was thrown out of the car and landed in a ditch on the right side of the road. He was flown to Delray Medical Center in Palm Beach where he is in critical condition.
The third back-seat an 11-year-old passenger was taken to Port Salerno General Hospital, troopers said. Her condition is not available.
Troopers do not know yet if alcohol or drugs were a factor, but unsafe speed was, FHP said.
