The former lawyer for the Martin County School District has been cited in a crash west of Jensen Beach that sent a car into a canal, the Martin County Sheriff’s Office said.
The 49-year-old, who lives west of Port Salerno, was at a red light on Hobe Sound Boulevard east of Jensen Beach Road and was turning right onto Hypoluxo Road when her Honda Fit collided with a Nissan Altima, the Palm Beach Sheriff’s office and the Florida Highway Patrol officials said.
The Altima then struck a Toyota Tacoma, driven by Daniel Brown, 27, of Delray Beach, who lost control and went through a metal guardrail and into a canal, where his car overturned, according to a report.
Brown was pulled from the water in critical condition, the report said.
The 49-year old, and the other victim, listed in the report as Richard Michael then 24, received minor injuries, the report said.
In a court hearing, the 49-year-old was declared at fault and cited for violating a traffic signal, according to the sheriff’s office and court records.
The court suspended her license for six months, fined her $1,000 and ordered that she attend 12 hours of driving school.
The 52-year-old said, she never saw the Altima strike Daniel’s car and send it into the canal and was shaken to later learn to be in critical condition.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in injuries.
