Woman Dies, Cousin Hurt In Delray Beach Crash
DELRAY BEACH – Two cousins were struck by a car, one fatally, as they walked across Federal Highway at Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach, authorities said.
A 55-year-old woman of Boca Raton and her cousin, 53, of Naples were hit at midnight, according to a Delray Beach police report.
It said officers found the two lying on northbound Federal just a few feet south of Atlantic, being attended to by people. Both women were taken to Delray Medical Center as trauma patients, and one of the women died less than an hour later, the report said.
Police said her cousin remained hospitalized at the time of this report.
The two had been struck by a 2006 Honda Civic driven by a 28-year-old man of Boca Raton, who was not hurt. Police said the driver had the right of way.
No one showed evidence of impairment, police said.
