West Palm Beach Woman Arrested In Fatal Hit-And-Run Crash
WEST PALM BEACH – A 30-year-old West Palm Beach woman was arrested in connection to a hit-and-run crash that killed a 33-year-old woman walking near Trump International Golf Club, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.
She was booked into the county jail on charges that include vehicular homicide, DUI manslaughter and leaving the scene of a crash involving a death. She is expected to appear at a bail hearing soon.
Authorities say the victim, also of West Palm Beach, died after she was struck by a 2019 Jeep Wrangler driven by the woman. The fatal crash happened on the 3200 block of Summit Boulevard, west of Congress Avenue.
According to a PBSO crash report, the driver was traveling east on Summit when she drove off the roadway and onto its shoulder at about 8:30 p.m. The vehicle then struck the victim as she was walking on the south shoulder.
She died that night at a hospital. The driver fled the scene, but law enforcement found her and pulled her car over.
