Help Out the West Boca Girl Scouts!

cornucopiaWest Boca Juniors Troop 20372  is collecting Thanksgiving dinner items to help give Thanksgiving dinners to families with kids who wouldn’t otherwise be able to have a special dinner.  Last year the troop had enough items for 6 entire Thanksgiving dinners. Dinner baskets went to families at Florence Fuller and Whispering Pines. Their goal this year is at least 12 dinners.
girl_scoutsTroop 20372 has been together for over 4 years. Recently the girls made pumpkins and goody bags for the children spending Halloween in the hospital. The Girl Scouts would appreciate it if you dropped off your donations at Whispering Pines on November 10th at 6:30 p.m. Or you can email to arrange for pick-up.

Accident on 441 at Sandalfoot

A reader reports another accident today on 441 in front of Sandalfoot Square. It appears to be involve two-cars. From the damage we see in the photos it may have been a head-on or frontal-offset collision.
Update from a reader:

I was actually there. Someone cut a woman off she slammed on her brakes I then slammed on my brakes and so on and some guy hit a car behind me and left the scene. The grey car there had to pull to the side to get out of the road. The cars behind him were totaled and leaking gas.

Boca High Grad Gets Second "DUI Causing Injury"

Boca High graduate Travis Streitz (above, 29) was arrested Thursday accused of a DUI involving “serious bodily injury to another.” Back in 2006 Streitz had another incident where he was charged with “DUI causing injury to person or property.” His probation did not go well and he was sentenced to 30 days in jail.
Mr. Streitz has been mostly clean since then, with a few minor traffic tickets, but he’s now being held on $3000 bond on the new charge. Court records this relates to an accident on August 2nd. We did report on a serious accident that day at Yamato and 441, but can’t be sure if they’re related.
Update: A source tells us the black car in the picture belongs to Mr. Streitz.
Mr. Streitz’ reported address is in the gated Paseo community south of Glades between Powerline and St. Andrews.
