A two-vehicle crash, involving a 2013 Hyundai Genesis and a 2014 Mercedes C250, occurred at around 12:35 a.m. on Sunday, May 30, 2021 near the Boca Del Mar development, west of Boca Raton, Florida. Three teenagers and two adults died, and five other persons, aged 12 to 14, injured in the accident.
Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office deputies said that at the time of the crash, the Hyundai car was traveling eastbound at a high speed on Camino Real near the intersection of Sanibel Drive left the road. The car was driven by an 18-year-old man, who lost control of his vehicle, which had eight people on board. The Hyundai car then hit a light pole on a median and then began to roll and eventually landed over the Mercedes car, which was traveling westbound on Camino Real.
All 6 back-seat passengers in the Hyundai car were ejected when the car entered the westbound lanes of Camino Real, before landing over the Mercedes vehicle. The 18-year-old Hyundai car driver, and two 13-year-old Hyundai car passengers from Boca Raton were declared dead at the accident scene. The 58-year-old male Mercedes driver and a 55-year-old female Mercedes passenger were transported to Delray Medical Center, where they were later declared dead.
The remaining five passengers of the Hyundai car, all from Delray Beach and Boca Raton, were transported to local hospitals. Four of them sustained severe injuries while the fifth passenger, a 14-year-old girl, was critically injured. Drugs or alcohol were not a contributing factor in the accident.
If any nearby person or vehicle were injured/damaged as a result of the driver’s negligence, there would likely be a valid personal injury claim.
