UPDATE: 79-Year-Old Woman Killed By 85-Year-Old Driver

DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The accident we first reported Thursday afternoon at the intersection of Linton Blvd. and Las Verdes Wayleft one woman dead and two others injured. Leona Goldsmith, 79, of Delray Beach died at Delray Medical Center.

According to PBSO investigators:

Thelma Kracov, 85, of Delray, was turning left from the eastbound left turning lane of Linton Boulevard to travel north on Las Verdes Way. Estria Hochstadt, 82, of Delray was traveling west on Linton Boulevard within the inside lane.  Kracov failed to yield to Hochstadt; thus, a violent crash occurred.  During the crash, the right front of Kracov’s 2009 Toyota impacted into the left front of Hochstadt’s 2013 Volkswagen.  As both vehicles separated and continued towards their final resting positions, the right front of Hochstadt’s car impacted into the left side of a third vehicle which had been properly stopped within the southbound right turning lane of Las Verdes Way.  The drivers of Hochstadt and Kracov were transported to the hospital for treatment of their non-life threatening injuries.  Goldsmith, the passenger in Hochsadt’s car, was pronounced dead.
