BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Boca Raton Real Estate Agent Vivian R. Schwartz was seriously injured in an accident that she — investigators say — caused by running a red light.
Thomas Giordano of Boca Raton, was killed. His wife, Brenda Giordano, was critically injured.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office tells BocaNewsNow.com that Schwartz, of Circle Pond Court, was traveling northbound on State Road 7 (441) approaching SW 3rd Street in her Lexus SUV. The Giordanos were stopped at a red light. When the light turned to a green arrow, the Giordanos entered the intersection but Schwartz didn’t stop for her red light.
Police say Schwartz “entered the intersection and violently impacted” the passenger side of the (Giordano’s) vehicle — a Mercury “Grand M.”
The Giordanos were rushed to Delray Medical Center where Thomas Giordano, 91, died in the operating room.
Vivian Schwartz and Kayla Schwartz — who was also in the vehicle — were seriously injured and taken to West Boca Medical Center.
Charges are pending.
