West Palm Man Dies As Driver Crashes Into Tree
An intoxicated driver crashed into a tree in suburban West Palm Beach, killing a man who was riding with him, police say.
The driver, 39, of West Palm Beach, was driving south on Congress Avenue, approaching Gun Club Road when he lost control of the 2010 Nissan Maxima he was steering, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
As he attempted to turn left onto Gun Club Road, the car skidded southeast and crashed into a tree, wrapping around it.
The impact killed a passenger, 37, of West Palm Beach.
Sheriff’s deputies believes alcohol or drugs were involved. Charges against the driver are pending, the department said. His injuries were reportedly minor.
