The officer injured in the crash is out of the hospital, Boynton Beach police said.

The police department identified the officer as Brittany Suzanne Jones. She is 28 and joined the department in January 2015.

“She is out of the hospital but has a long road to recovery. She thanks everyone in the department and public for their support and well wishes,” the agency said in a statement.

The officer’s 2014 Ford Taurus was struck as she traveled north on Federal Highway approaching Ocean Avenue. Police said a southbound 2014 Chevrolet Equinox turned left in front of the patrol vehicle, striking it in the front driver’s side. The officer swerved to the right, then struck a traffic light post at the northeast corner of the intersection.

The report said Jones suffered head and leg injuries. It said Boynton Beach Fire-Rescue took her to a unnamed hospital.

The other driver, a 42-year old man of Greenacres, was declared at fault and was issued a citation for failing to yield, the report said.

The agency withheld the officer’s name after the crash, saying it would release it after its initial report was complete.

Deborah Eber Killed When Stolen Vehicle Crashes Into Her Car On Delray Highway

A 60-year-old Acreage woman died when a 17-year-old male stole a car at a Jupiter gas station, fled from police, raced down the Delray Highway, ran a red light and slammed into her vehicle, authorities said.

5-761-62427

Deborah Eber was killed at about when her 2016 Toyota Corolla was struck by a 2015 Acura driven by the teen, according to a Palm Beach County sheriff’s report.

The Palm Beach Post is not naming the 17-year old driver, who also resides in Acreage, because he had not been criminally charged as an adult. The Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office will decide whether to file those charges, and there was no indication what those charges would be.

One of Eber’s family members said the family was too distraught to talk about its loss. He said Eber was married with two sons and a daughter and had two grandchildren, with one on the way.

While the PBSO report, posted, covers only the crash, a Palm Beach Gardens police sergeant said his department spotted the car on the Delray Highway after Jupiter police had broadcast that they were searching for a stolen vehicle. The crash occurred moments later, police authorities said.

A Jupiter police spokeswoman said the car was stolen from the Chevron gas station at Alternate State Road A1A and Indiantown Road, just west of the Intracoastal Waterway bridge. She said the owner had walked inside the gas station and left the Acura running.

Officers spotted the stolen Acura traveling west on Indiantown Road and tried to pull it over. The driver did not stop, instead accelerated onto southbound Interstate 95, where officers lost sight of the vehicle. The vehicle later was seen exiting the interstate eastbound on Donald Ross Road.

It traveled south on Central Boulevard into Palm Beach Gardens, whose police department took over the search, the spokeswoman said. The vehicle was spotted traveling west on PGA Boulevard near Florida’s Turnpike.

Eber was declared dead at the scene. She was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, according to a sheriff’s crash report said.

The 17-year-old male and a 14-year-old male in his car both were taken to an undisclosed hospital. The PBSO report said the driver suffered serious injuries and his passenger had minor injuries.

The PBSO report does not indicate that either drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.

Comments:

Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in a fatality. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck.

“Senseless,” the 29-year old woman said with a sob.

“This was so senseless. She was innocent.”

“She was running errands after work,” her daughter said. “She was shopping. She was on her way home. The road she travels every single day.”

The 60-year-old medical transcriptionist from Acreage was married and a mother of three and grandmother of two, with one on the way.

“We want justice served for her,” her 29-year old daughter said.

Authorities could not immediately provide an update on either the conditions or arrest status of the 17-year-old male they say drove the stolen car, or the 14-year-old male who was a passenger in the car. Both were taken to an undisclosed hospital after the crash, the driver, also an Acreage resident, with serious injuries and his passenger, of Haverhill, with minor injuries.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office said no charges have been filed as the agency investigates the crash. Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens police have not yet said anything about criminal charges in the car theft and chase.

The Palm Beach Post is not naming the teens because neither has not been criminally charged as an adult.

It sped west to Interstate 95, then east on Donald Ross Road and south on Central Boulevard into Palm Beach Gardens, where police there spotted the car on the Beeline moments before it crashed into the 60-year old woman’s car near Northlake Boulevard, police said.

St. Lucie County police officers on patrol spotted smoke coming from the area and initially thought a house was on fire, according to police reports.

The officers saw the crash and heard someone screaming from inside’s the car of the 19-year old, according to police reports. One officer pulled the 19-year old from the car and dragged him onto a nearby porch, police reports say. Another officer checked the 27-year old man’s car. The man was unconscious and his 21-year-old female passenger was severely injured.  She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers ran back to the car of the 19-year old after it burst into flames and after seeing the 17-year-old boy was trapped in the backseat, police reports say.

An officer unsuccessfully tried to break a side window. Another officer broke the back windshield, grabbed a garden hose from a nearby home and tried to extinguish the fire, according to police reports.

The car became engulfed in flames. An officer cut off the teen’s seatbelt and two officers pulled him from the car, according to police reports.

Meanwhile, the car of the 27-year old caught fire while he was still trapped in the front seat. Other officers and firefighters arrived, put the fire out and pulled him from the front seat, according to police.

They were all taken to a nearby hospital, the post reports.
