Boca Raton Woman Killed In Turnpike Accident

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Boca Raton resident Olga Ferreira, 31, was killed this morning in a violent three car accident at the Glades Road entrance to the Florida Turnpike.

The Florida Highway Patrol tells BocaNewsNow.com that Ferreira was driving northbound on the entrance ramp in a 2007 Toyota Scion when she apparently lost control and struck on the left side by an oncoming vehicle — a 2012 Chevy Silverado.

Both vehicles hit the center median, and then Ferreira’s car hit a third vehicle, a 2007 Land Rover.

Ferreira was pronounced dead at the scene. Her 25 year old passenger, Mauryleno Ferreira, also of Boca, was transported to Delray Medical Center with serious injuries.

47-year-old Brian Padgett of Pompano Beach, driving the Chevy Silverado, was taken to West Boca Medical Center with serious injuries. 26-year-old Melch Pope, of Hollywood, suffered minor injuries in the Land Rover.

The accident shut down the northbound turnpike for several hours and remains under investigation, but alcohol has already been determined to not be a factor. Olga Ferreira was wearing a seatbelt.
