BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A second driver is now behind bars, accused of taking part in an impromptu race that left an unwitting Fran Abel dead. Abel, 57, was driving onto Jog Road from Mizner Preserve when she was struck by an oncoming speeding car.
Gregory Comon, 21, of Camino Real is charged with Vehicular Manslaughter and Manslaughter by Culpable Negligence. Amir Talebzedah was arrested and charged earlier this week. Comon was taken into custody by a Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office tactical team.
As we reported, Abel pulled out of the community and was struck by Talebzedah speeding north on Jog Road. Talebzedah was allegedly racing Comon.
Both Talebzedah and Comon were driving at high rates of speed, during heavy morning traffic and were abruptly changing lanes when Fran Abel entered the roadway from a side street. Abel struck Comon and was then struck by Talebzedah. Abel died on the crash scene.
