NAMES RELEASED: Boca, Delray Residents Killed In Crash

DELRAY BEACH, FL ( — The two people killed in an early Sunday morning crash on Jog road, just North of Atlantic Avenue have been identified.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office says Arthur Rischter, 19, of Delray Beach was the driver, Sam Swisa,17, of Boca Raton was the passenger. Both were killed in the one car accident when Rischter apparently lost control of the Jeep which struck the side of the road, a utility pole, then came to rest after a violent crash.

From PBSO:

Here is the preliminary report, directly from PBSO. “V-1” is the reference for Vehicle 1, “D-1” is Driver-1.

V-1 was southbound on Jog Road, approaching S. Oriole Blvd. For unknown reasons D-1 lost control and V-1 left the roadway. V-1 struck the curb on the west side of the roadway and crossed the sidewalk where it struck a metal pedestrian guardrail.

The driver’s side of V-1 then struck a concrete utility pole on the northwest corner of the intersection.

The passenger’s side of V-1 then impacted with a second concrete utility pole just southwest of the first pole. V-1 then rotated to final rest on the sidewalk on the northwest corner, facing northwest.

D-1 was pronounced dead on the scene and the passenger died at Delray medical Center a short time later. Names withheld pending notification and positive identification.
