Reckless Driver Hits Tree in Boca Winds

We heard about a traffic incident last night from a reader and also from a personal friend. We’ve checked the blotter and see no arrests that fit with this incident nor the pedestrians hit in front of West Boca Medical Center. We have reached out to PBSO but so far we’re not getting meaningful answers on either one.

Me and my friend almost got into a wreck because of these people but the person driving the truck seemed drunk and was swerving all over the road. They hit a tree and then the driver ran from the scene and left the truck!

And from our friend:

A truck passed us going over 100 in a residential area just outside [Boca Winds]. He turned sharply into [Boca Falls] immediately in front of another car, blocking the car from moving forward. We thought it might be a case of road rage and that the two drivers were about to get into it. But the truck backs away after a couple of seconds (and probably after seeing that road was the entrance to a gated subdivision – Boca Falls), cuts in front of us, and goes across the street into [Boca Winds], driving really wildly and out of control. The truck slams into a tree and just then a police car flies by us in pursuit. The driver of the truck jumped out of the vehicle and “escaped” on foot with the officer in pursuit. This all happened right in front of us over just 30 seconds or so. We had to back out of the entrance to get to our street another way.

Boca Falls and Boca Winds have entrances that meet on West Palmetto Park Road about 2 miles west of 441.

Here’s is last night’s public statement from PBSO:

Around 9 pm this evening PBSO responded to a hit and run accident involving 1 vehicle and 3 pedestrians. The vehicle was traveling north bound on State Road 7 just north of Central Park Blvd South.
The three pedestrians were riding skate boards on the bicycle lane on the east side of the road going north when they were struck by the vehicle. The vehicle left the scene heading north and has been apprehended. Two of the pedestrians where taken to delray medical center and are in stable condition and one was taken west boca medical.
The investigation is open and ongoing and the driver will be checked for possible impairment.

In the blotter we found a hit-and-run arrest, but the driver was from West Palm Beach and court records say that relates to an incident in July. We also see a “fleeing law enforcement” arrest, but the driver in that incident is from Pahokee, which is an awfully long drive from Palmetto Park Road.

April/May Home Sales in 33428

We try to do monthly real estate updates for each of the five zip codes in West Boca. We’ve fallen a bit behind so here’s a month and a half from 33428.

Four Houses in Boca Falls
21624 Marigot Drive sold for $603,000 on April 22nd. With 3 bedrooms and 3 baths in 3100 square feet, it seems like a high price. It may have benefited from a cul-de-sac location in the Crystal Pointe subdivision. On the other hand its backyard faces Riverview Drive which probably means increased road noise. The house was bought new in 1997 for $322K.
A large home in Emerald Isles, 12895 Hyland Circle sold for $560K on May 15th. It has 3300 square feet, 5 beds and 3 1/2 baths, a lake view and is very close to Waters Edge Elementary.
Mystic Bay’s 21405 Shannon Ridge is another 5 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath house, though with slightly less square footage. It sold for $585K on May 9th.
12445-RockledgeWe’re pleased to see that even the “low end” in Boca Falls is selling for over $500K. This 2500 square foot, 4 bedroom house in Mystic Cove sold for $503K on April 4th. The location is great for those who want to walk to the clubhouse area, with its popular tennis courts, fitness room and resort-style pool. From the appraiser’s records it looks like the house was bank-owned for a few months, and had sold near the market’s peak for $694K back in 2005.
Three Houses in Loggers Run
A short sale in Winding Lakes, 21142 Castlewood sold for $502,500 on April 11th. This is a big house with nearly 5000 square feet, five bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths. Records indicate the home was purchased in 2000 for $452K and the owner passed away in 2011, leaving this as a sale by his estate.
In the Winding Lakes II subdivision, 11895 Sandlake Drive sold for $420K on April 10th. Oddly it also had the address 11897 Sandlake Drive and the appraiser has the transaction occurring in March. The house originally sold 30 years ago for $202K.
On the southern end of Loggers Run (south of Palmetto off Judge Winikoff), 22396 Waterside sold for $490K on May 21st. It has 4 beds and 2 1/2 baths, and is a short walk to Publix and the middle school.

Boca Winds

The highest price sale in Boca Winds was for 22212 Collington, which went for $417,500 on April 9th. It has a pool, a lake view, and is a short walk from the clubhouse.
Next on the list for Boca Winds is 22111 Altona, which sold for an even $400K on May 5th. It’s similar with a pool and lake view, and it is also close to the western edge with the Loxahatchee wildlife refuge just over the trees.
