An off-duty Riviera Beach Sheriff’s Deputy who police said ran a stop sign had slammed his pickup into the car that a 19-year-old girl was a passenger. At Boca Raton Medical Center, doctors told the father of the girl that his daughter had a traumatic injury. And was in a coma.
Delray Beach police said, a man was traveling 40 mph in a 25 mph zone. He told officers he didn’t see the stop sign at Northeast First Avenue and Northeast Third Street. His 2018 Chevrolet Silverado pickup struck the Chevrolet Tahoe carrying the 19-year-old girl and another 31-year-old man.
The deputy and three others were treated at the crash site for minor injuries and two others were taken to Delray Medical for minor injuries and then released. Air bags had deployed and everyone wore safety belts, police said.
The 25-year-old pickup driver, joined PBSO years ago and is a road-patrol deputy, the Sheriff’s Office said. A spokeswoman said, he remains on active duty.
The victim, who plans to be an aeronautics engineer, is still in a coma and on a ventilator. Her parents said, “She’s shown some slight signs of improvement. Her eyes have sporadically opened and she got past an infection.”
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in injuries.
