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.
