A Palm Beach County woman is under arrest, accused of driving drunk and causing a fiery and deadly crash while speeding away from a deputy.
According to her arrest report, a 27-year-old woman was involved in a domestic dispute.
A PBSO corporal said while responding to the dispute, he spotted the 27-year-old leaving the development in her Ford F-150 pickup truck.
The corporal said, when he attempted to pull her over, she began to flee and ran a stop sign.
PBSO said, the 27-year old was speeding at 86 miles per hour when she smashed into a silver Nissan car, driven by Amalia Narine, at the intersection of Lake Worth Rd. and Lyons Rd.
Narine’s vehicle burst into flames and the 27-year old woman’s truck flipped over into a ditch.
Deputies said, Narine was pronounced dead on scene, and the 27-year-old woman was taken to Delray Medical Center where a test revealed her blood alcohol content was .179.
She was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on charges of DUI manslaughter, vehicular homicide, and DUI property damage.
In court, a judge set the 27-year-old woman’s bond at $85,000. If she posts bond, she’ll be on house arrest, must surrender her passport, isn’t allowed to drive, can’t have any contact with the victim’s family, and must undergo random drug and alcohol testing.
Narine’s family said, the young woman was an aspiring model.
