The crash happened when a vehicle struck a car and killed a man on Jog Rd, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.
The crash happened at Jog Rd and Forest Hill Blvd killing one man of suburban West Palm Beach. He was a passenger in a Honda CRV driven by a 23-year-old who sustained minor injuries.
The vehicle’s headlights were turned off when it sped into the intersection and ran a stop sign. Its front end collided with the rear passenger side of the Honda, investigators said in their report. The force of the crash threw the man from the car.
The driver ran away from the scene leaving the vehicle behind, PBSO said. The sheriff’s office did not release a description of the driver.
The crash took place in a neighborhood of family homes in Greenacres.
It was not immediately clear if speed or alcohol played a role.
First emergency responders arrived at the site soon after the accident happened and the victims were transported to the hospital for treatment.
This route is partially blocked due to the severity of the crash, causing traffic delays.
Authorities are investigating.
