One Dead, One Critically Injured After Rollover Crash Near Pahokee

A rollover car crash near the Pahokee airport has claimed the life of a teenager and left a man in a critical condition, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office disclosed.


Seven individuals were injured after a Honda Accord vehicle crashed into another vehicle. Prior to the crash, the Honda Accord was seen traveling southbound on Bacom Point Road, also known as State Road 715. The driver failed to turn when the road curved and drove off its west side. The vehicle rolled over, throwing everyone inside it out of the car.

According to the sheriff’s office, evidence at the scene showed that neither alcohol nor drugs were a factor of the crash. Authorities, however, could not identify who the driver was.

A 14-year-old boy of Belle Glade was confirmed dead at the crash scene. He was in the car with a friend who was in critical condition at Delray Medical Center.

The other six people in the car sustained injuries in the crash, the sheriff’s office said. They were transported to the hospital shortly after the accident occurred.


Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving two vehicles, which ultimately, resulted in the death of one person and caused injuries to several others. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident so that the family and friends of the victims can get justice and have a closure. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
