A car driven by a young man zipped through a stop sign and smashed into another vehicle in Martin County, killing six people including a woman who was returning from a banquet as the County’s probation agent of the year, police authorities said.

“This should have never happened. People should be paying attention to their speed, to the traffic signals,” a Martin County Police Lieutenant said.

The crash happened late in Martin County Township, about 35 miles (55 kilometers) northwest of Stuart.

Investigators said, a car driven by a 22-year-old man failed to stop at a stop sign and struck a vehicle traveling east on Martin County Highway.

Two people died in one car and four in the other. Four more people were also in critical condition, including the 22-year-old driver and the 39-year-old driver of the other vehicle.

The six people confirmed dead included a 35-year-old woman who was returning home from a Martin County Corrections Department banquet where she was celebrated as parole/probation agent of the year. Her 69-year-old mother was also severely injured. They were in the car driven by the 39-year-old driver of the other vehicle that had the right of way.

The crash also killed a 20-year-old man from Port Salerno, injured a 24-year-old from Riviera Beach and a 73-year-old man.


Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in fatalities.
