A teenager injured herself and three others when she drifted into oncoming traffic near Boca Raton, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and the Florida Highway Patrol officials said.
The 17-year-old girl was arrested on DUI charges, records show. Test results after the wreck showed she had marijuana and Alprazolam, commonly known as Xanax, in her system.
She was recently booked into the Palm Beach County Jail
Her car crossed over into oncoming traffic on Cain Boulevard near Vista Grand Road, just north of Glades Road, sheriff’s office records indicate.
She hit another car, injuring the three people inside, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
Deputies found her trapped in the car. When a deputy spoke with her at Delray Medical Center, she appeared impaired, records stated. She smelled of alcohol, had slurred speech and was confused by what had happened, the deputy wrote.
She told officials she couldn’t remember what happened. She said she hadn’t consumed either alcohol or drugs before the crash, only Seroquel, a drug used to treat mood disorders.
She is scheduled to appear before a Palm Beach County judge.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in injuries.
