Bernice’s relative, who was in a Kia sedan, was involved in a wreck on the interstate. He said Bernice got out of her car to check on the relative. A 1998 Honda Civic, driven by a 56-year old woman of Martin County, was traveling south on I-75 at the time, according to a news release from the FHP.

Officials said downpours in the area prevented the 56-year-old from seeing the Kia initially.

“She said did not see it until the last second,” a FHP official said.

FHP officials said the 56-year-old had swerved to avoid the car, but instead sideswiped it and hit Bernice in the process. The car rotated counter-clockwise before stopping.

Authorities said Bernice landed behind the Kia after she was struck, suffering a severed leg. The FHP and the Martin County Sheriff’s Office provided tourniquets to help stabilize her leg, according to the release.

The 56-year-old remained on the scene. FHP said charges in the crash are still pending.

Police said the robbery occurred with an individual in the parking lot of a building located at 980 North Federal Highway in Boca Raton.

According to police, the alleged robbers then fled in a car west of Palmetto Park Road.

The suspect’s car, a 2005 Acura MDX, crashed into two other vehicles at W Palmetto Park Road and NW 12 Avenue. A report from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office blames the crash on the Acura driving too fast and possibly running a red light.

It slammed into a 2016 Toyota Sienna and a 1996 Ford Ranger. The passengers in the Acura included Jeffrey Don of Fort Lauderdale and four minors from Pompano Beach, Coral Springs and Fort Lauderdale.

Nine people were taken to Delray Medical Center. Jeffery and the driver of the Acura suffered critical injuries. Five of the minors suffered serious injuries.

The driver of the 2016 Toyota Sienna is a 55-year-old man. He suffered critical injuries. The driver of the other vehicle struck is a 35-year-old man. He suffered minor injuries and has been discharged from the hospital.

Westbound Palmetto Park Road was closed for several hours.

Boca Raton police are investigating the robbery and PBSO is investigating the pursuit and crash.

Three Injured In Multiple-Vehicle Crash In Boca Raton

FHP authorities said, a 54-year-old man was struck in the right lane of northbound Boca Raton just north of Interstate 95.

PB sher 1027

According to a preliminary report, a 29-year old of Wellington was driving his 2012 Chevrolet Express north on the inside lane and Louisa Frank of Delray Beach was in the Audi just ahead of the 29-year-old. Louisa slowed and the 43-year-old driver’s car struck hers, causing it to spin clockwise and strike the 54-year-old man. Dramatic video of the impact was captured by WPEC-TV Channel 12.

An FHP spokesman said, no citations or criminal charges have been filed and the investigation is ongoing.

A 32-year-old man, who runs a pressure-cleaning business, said he had been moving his business and his residence a little at a time from Broward to St. Lucie County, where his son lives.

He was northbound on the expressway when he was rear-ended. He said the impact destroyed his trailer and sent its contents spilling.

Few hours later, he still was on the side of the highway, waiting for the investigation to wrap up, when the Audi spun toward him. He said he never saw the car coming at him; “it happened so quick.” He said he felt pain in his leg as the 43-year old man pushed him down.

One Dead, Dozens Injured After Man Caused Boca Raton Car Crash

A man, who drove his car into a crowd of counter-protesters at a white nationalist rally in Palm Beach County, was convicted of first-degree murder for killing a woman in an attack that inflamed long-simmering racial and political tensions across the country.

sebast police car 119

A state jury rejected arguments that the 45-year-old acted in self-defense during a rally in Boca Raton. The 45-year-old was also convicted of five other charges, including aggravated assault and hit and run.

The 45-year-old drove to Boca Raton from his home in Fort Lauderdale to support the white nationalists. As a large group of counter-protesters marched through Boca Raton singing and laughing, he stopped his car, backed up, then sped into the crowd, according to testimony from witnesses and video surveillance shown to jurors.

Prosecutors told the jury that the 45-year-old was angry after witnessing violent clashes between the two sides earlier in the day. The violence prompted police to shut down the rally before it even officially began.

A 39-year-old paralegal and civil rights activist was killed, and nearly three dozen others were injured. The trial featured emotional testimony from survivors who described devastating injuries and long, complicated recoveries.

The body of a 44-year-old was found in an area previously covered by floodwaters, miles from where witnesses reported seeing the family’s maroon Honda Pilot striking a BMW before falling into a river near Wellington, reports the Florida Highway Patrol.

Searchers smelled gasoline a half-mile north of the reported crash site and found the vehicle submerged, with the bodies of a 44-year-old, a 13-year-old girl and a 33-year-old inside, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office announced.

The body of an18-year-old boy was found submerged in the river, six miles north of the crash site, reports the FHP.

The family whose personal items were also found in the river had been traveling from Boynton Beach to their home in Martin County.

FHP reports showed that two people in the BMW were injured and are currently being attended to medical officials.

Authorities now believe the family’s vehicle pulled into a turnoff on Highway 101, about 200 miles northwest of Wellington, after hitting the BMW before plunging into the river.

Pedestrian Sustained Minor Injuries After Being Hit By Vehicle In Broward County

A woman has narrowly avoided serious injury after she was hit on a Wilton Manors pedestrian crossing.

TC 929

The 52-year-old was crossing the road after work. She said she looked left and saw a car approaching, appearing to slow down to a stop.

The 52-year-old started to cross and reached the center of the road before realizing the driver had not seen her and was not stopping.  The car struck her left side.

She knows the incident could have been much worse and she escaped with minor head injuries which had been treated in a local hospital in Martin County.

She wanted to raise awareness of the dangerous crossing, which has been the site of several pedestrian accidents.

She said the crossing should be raised to make pedestrians more visible, especially when the afternoon sun hits drivers in the eyes, which she said happened yesterday.

She said she also had a near miss on the crossing sometime ago, when she had to jump out of the way to avoid being hit.

Davidson Muller Dies Along Aside A 26-Year-Old Friend After Deadly Car Crash

A Palm Beach County man was killed on his wedding day when a Honda Accord carrying him, his new wife and friends crashed.

PB sher 1027

Friends and family were mourning the deaths of Davidson Muller of Wellington, and his 26-year-old friend Janet Benjamin, who was killed in Palm Beach County when the Honda driver lost control, FHP authorities said.

Davidson had married 41-year-old Juliana Kings before the crash, Florida Highway Patrol reported. Juliana was in critical condition, as was the driver.

A Palm Beach County Sheriff said, that alcohol likely was a factor in the crash based on statements of people who were at the wedding reception, but that hasn’t been determined for sure.

The Sheriff said the four had gone to Davidson’s house and were returning to the wedding reception at a private barn. The Honda drove off the left side of the road and struck an embankment and a truck before rolling several times and coming to rest in a cornfield, the sheriff’s office said. Investigators don’t believe anyone was wearing a seat belt.

Janet and Davidson had to be extricated from the wreckage, a sheriff’s office report said. Janet was dead at the scene and Davidson died later at a hospital.

A lady said her friend Davidson was like a brother to her.

The truck driver was uninjured.
