A Boynton Beach man, whose driver’s license was suspended for 9 years and who has six convictions of driving with a suspended license, was arrested after he fled police then caused a crash that left five men with serious injuries, according to a police report.
The 23-year-old is facing charges of fleeing and eluding police causing injury or death, driving with a suspended license and failure to appear. His bond amount has been set at $20,000, but he remains hospitalized as a result of the crash and has been unable to appear in court.
He was seen by a Boynton Beach police officer just after midnight allegedly running a stop sign at the intersection of Northeast Fourth Avenue and Northeast Fourth Street at a high rate of speed.
The officer attempted to make a traffic stop, but he fled in a 2004 Pontiac, running another stop sign before getting onto northbound Interstate 95 at Boynton Beach Boulevard.
The officer exited at Hypoluxo Road where he noticed the Pontiac had been involved in a crash in the 1400 block of Hypoluxo Road in Lantana. The crash caused a 2011 Toyota to roll over and the driver and four other people sustained injuries and were transported to a trauma center in Delray Medical Center.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in injuries. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
