Delray Beach Dad And Son Critically After Car Crash With BMW

A fatal crash involving a van that had a tire malfunction shut down all southbound lanes of Interstate 95 during the evening rush hour in northern Palm Beach County.

Palm Beach highway 119

The crash involving one vehicle, a 2005 Chevy, occurred at Exit 79C near Military Trail in Palm Beach Gardens.

Injured was Robert Lebanon, 43, of Delray Beach and his 22-year-old son who were passengers in the car driven by a 34-year-old also of Delray Beach.

The vehicle was traveling on I-95 in the left center lane, just north of Military Trail, when there was a tire malfunction, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The 34-year-old lost control of the vehicle, which crashed into a BMW and rolled over several times. It came to a rest between the left HOV lane and the left center lane, facing in the west direction, FHP said.

Robert and his son were critically injured at the scene and the 34-year old had minor injuries, according to FHP.

The driver was wearing a seat belt but it wasn’t known if Robert did.

Initially, all five lanes were shut down, but within an hour one lane was reopened. Only one lane was blocked but traffic was backed up to Donald Ross Road where motorists were exiting. Shortly later all lanes were open.

Driver And Two Passengers Injured After Car Crash In West Palm Beach

Three people were injured after a red Lincoln and a silver Kia crashed near the intersection of Banyan Boulevard and Australian Avenue.

Stuart 926

The West Palm Beach police said, the Kia was making a right turn from Banyan Boulevard when the Lincoln hit the Kia.

The driver of the Kia and two passengers were taken to a nearby hospital. The extent of their injuries is unclear. Police officials are trying to determine who is at fault. There appear to be no witnesses. The northbound lanes of Australian were shut down while traffic was diverted to Banyan Boulevard. Just the right lane of Australian Avenue was closed.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office had no immediate information on what must have caused the accident. Florida Highway Patrol reports the Lincoln went into the northbound lanes, through a guardrail and over an embankment before coming back on the right lane of Australian Avenue next to a creek near Wellington.

The Kia was headed to a concert at the Jensen Beach in Martin County before the accident happened, West Palm Beach Police officials said.

“If you have any relevant information relating to the crash, please call the West Palm Police Department or the Florida Highway Patrol,” said a West Palm Police spokesman.
