A family vacationing in Riviera Beach were critically injured when a speeding pickup slammed into the back of their van, Delray Beach police said.
Vladimir Jones Ruby of Russia; his sister, 37-year-old Laurel Hilton of San Francisco; and her two children, were critically injured by the time rescue crews reached them in their crushed minivan.
A Chevy Silverado slammed into the back of the family’s 2018 Dodge Caravan at “a very high rate of speed” on South Federal Highway south of Linton Boulevard, police said.
Witnesses estimated the pickup, driven by a 43-year-old man, was going about 100 mph when it swerved to avoid traffic and rear-ended the minivan waiting to turn east into the Tropic Isle community on La-Mat Avenue. Police said, the family spent the day in Boynton Beach and was returning to the home they rented on Florida Boulevard.
The truck and the van crossed the median into the northbound lanes and collided with a Buick Encore. The totaled van became stuck between the truck and the Encore.
Riviera Beach Fire Rescue authorities had to separate the vehicles before they could reach the four people inside the van. All were critically injured and rushed to a nearby hospital.
