UPDATE: Woman Killed In Jog Road Crash

Fran Abel of Delray Beach died when police say she sped into oncoming traffic while leaving Mizner Preserve on Jog Road.

UPDATE: Following a conversation with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office after many emails to our newsroom, BocaNewsNow.com is refiling this story. While speed is believed to be a factor in this case, investigators tell us that they believe it was NOT Fran Abel who was speeding.
DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A woman driving out of Mizner Preserve on Jog Road — just over the Boca/Delray line — was killed Monday morning in a horrific three car crash.
We first reported the story shortly after it happened. PBSO just released the name of the victim.
Investigators say Fran Abel, 57, was driving her 2009 Audi as she exited from Mizner Preserve across Jog Road. She apparently slammed into a vehicle that was traveling north on Jog which forced that car into a spin. That vehicle hit a tree, then stopped in the street. A third vehicle, also heading northbound, couldn’t stop and ended up hitting the driver’s door.
Speed IS considered a factor in this case, however alcohol is not. Investigators are focusing on the vehicles heading northbound, NOT on Fran Abel’s speed.
If you saw the crash, please call PBSO at 561-681-4535.

  1. I witnessed the red car and black car heading northbound on jog at very high rates of speed, I thought to myself “they better slow down”. I was on my morning walk to clintmore. I did not see them when they struck the vehicle leaving Mizner, and I am surprised to see whoever wrote this article not know those facts. The red car and black car were traveling well over the speed limit, and their exhausts sounded like Ferarri’s that’s what got my attention. I highly doubt the lady leaving mizner could have gotten close to the speeds these cars were at. Poor article shame on the journalist.

    1. Dustin,
      I’m writing to you because it was my mother that was killed in the car accident. Are you aware that the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office is looking for potential witnesses? I understand that you didn’t see the accident but the fact that you witnessed the black and the red car speeding north on Jog Road is extremely important. The phone number for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office for this particular case is 561-681-4535. I would be so thankful if you would contact them with whatever information you have.
