Head-On Crash on 441 – Photos

Update: We have just learned that one of the drivers was dead on the scene: Victim Identified.

***WEST BOCA*** Car Accident — New England Blvd @ State Rd 7/US 441 — E54 onscene of a veh collision w/ heavy damage, Command advising 1 confirmed Signal-7 (DOA) at scene & 1 other patient being treated by Rescue — Tac 4A

Shortly before 10 pm this evening we learned that there had been an accident on 441 near New England Blvd. Palm Beach County Fire Rescue notified followers on Twitter of the incident:

We arrived on scene about 10 minutes later. The accident was on the southbound side of 441, just north of New England and the Boca Greens plaza. A reader tells us he drove past at 9:10 pm and there was a young body on the ground.

Deputies had blocked off 441 southbound at Yamato. As far as we know it’s still blocked as of this writing. PBSO cruisers were still arriving when we left.

We were able to get some photos of the accident scene itself. From a bit further away, looking from south and north:

And some closer shots:

It appeared to this reporter that the vehicle occupants had already been taken to hospitals. No ambulances were at the scene and no one was in the cars. No one other than deputies were nearby.
The vehicle on the right appeared to be a Volkswagen Golf or GTI, facing southbound in the southbound left-hand lane. The vehicle on the left in our photos appears to be a Volkswagen Jetta and was facing northbound in that same lane on the southbound side, suggesting that driver was traveling in the wrong direction. However, accident scenes can be hard to read.
It may not show up on photos but it appeared to this reporter that the vehicles’ cabins remained intact.
Deputy Frey from the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office (PBSO) came over to inquire and politely declined to answer any questions. He’s on the left in the picture below, with New England Blvd. in the background at far left.

Thanks to the Palm Beach County Alerts Facebook page for the update.
