Man Facing Vehicular Homicide Charge In Crash That Killed Woman, 21, Near Fairgrounds

A West Palm Beach man is facing vehicular homicide and DUI manslaughter charges following a fiery crash near the South Florida Fairgrounds that killed a 21-year-old Lake Worth Beach woman.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office arrested a man, 26, in the death of a woman. Paramedics declared her dead at the scene of the wreck at Southern Boulevard and Sansburys Way.

PBSO’s arrest report said the man is an unlicensed driver and that his blood-alcohol level measured .149 about an hour after the crash. The legal threshold for intoxication in Florida is .08.

Circuit Judge Charles Burton set his bail at $250,000 during a hearing at the Palm Beach County Jail. If released, he will be on house arrest, according to online court records.

The PBSO report said he failed to slow his 2006 Toyota Corolla as he approached the traffic signal at the intersection, where she had stopped her car at a red light.

The Corolla struck the back of her 2018 Honda Accord, pushing the rear of the car several feet into the passenger compartment and rupturing the vehicle’s fuel tank. The car caught fire before first responders arrived.

The PBSO report did not indicate the Corolla’s speed at the time of the crash.

PBSO’s report said she then got out of the car and walked away from the crash scene. Deputies found him nearby with the help of K-9s and a PBSO helicopter, and a witness identified him as the Corolla’s driver.

He sustained critical injuries in the crash and received treatment at St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach. The medical staff at the hospital measured his blood-alcohol level, according to the arrest report.

Investigators also said they found “open and broken beer bottles scattered throughout” the Corolla.

Comments:

Attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to distracted driving.  “In my many years as a Personal Injury Lawyer I’ve helped many victims that were injured because someone was distracted and crashed into their vehicles.  If you’ve been injured by someone because they weren’t paying attention to the road, please call me so I can help you get compensation for your damages.”

3 Injured After Early Morning Crash In Boynton Beach

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla.— Three people were injured, one of them critically, after a crash early morning.

Boynton Beach police say the crash happened before dawn on West Boynton Beach Boulevard near Knuth Road.

A preliminary investigation revealed a white Ford 250 was heading west on West Boynton Beach Boulevard when a black Honda Accord approached the back of the truck “at a high rate of speed,” police said. The Honda failed to slow down and hit the left rear corner of the Ford, causing it to slam into a concrete utility pole.

The driver of the Ford and the front seat passenger were taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to police. However, the backseat passenger was taken via trauma alert with critical injuries.

Police say the driver of the Honda, who only had minor injuries, is suspected of driving under the influence and charges are pending the outcome of the DUI investigation.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call Traffic Homicide Investigator Dennis Castro at 561-742-6147.

Lake Worth Man Dies After Second Car Crash On Same Day

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla.— A man from Lake Worth is dead after he crashed his car for a second time — on the same day.

According to Broward County Sheriff’s Office, a man, 47, initially was involved in a minor car accident on the 5400 block of South Dixie Highway in Deerfield Beach.

After fleeing the scene, he once again crashed his vehicle — just 16 minutes later — after driving into a light pole at the 500 block of South Dixie Highway.

The driver drove his 2009 green Honda Accord’s driver’s side tires and rims into the concrete curb on the west side of Dixie Highway.

As he crossed Southwest Fifth Street, the vehicle drove onto the sidewalk, continued through the grass and struck a light pole. The pole then collapsed and drove head-on into a bus bench where the Accord came to a final stop.

The vehicle then caught on fire before BSO deputies arrived to extinguish the flame.

Broward Sheriff’s Fire Rescue transported the driver to Broward Health North where he was pronounced dead.

BSO Traffic Homicide detectives are handling this ongoing investigation.
