Driver 2 (D2) driving Vehicle 2 (V2) Robin Pace of Boca Raton driving a 1994 Oldsmobile.

V1 was within the left turn lane on southbound SR7 at the intersection of Central Park Blvd. N. wanting to turn left onto Central Park. V2 was traveling northbound on SR7 within the outside lane of travel. As V2 was passing through the intersection it was struck on the driver’s side by V1. This caused V2 to go into a counterclockwise side slip. V2 was redirected onto the east shoulder. As it went onto the shoulder, it was sideways. This caused V2 to flip onto its passenger side. V2 then slid to final rest. During the crash sequence the driver of V2 was not wearing his seatbelt and was ejected from V2. He was taken to Delray Medical Center.
