BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Gabriella Heiderick, a 17 year old Boca Raton resident, was killed in a one car crash early Saturday morning.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office says Heiderick was traveling westbound in the outside lane of Glades Road, approaching Florida’s Turnpike, when she apparently lost control on a “mild bend” on the roadway.
Investigators say the vehicle “began to rotate off the roadway and struck a tree with the driver’s side door on the north side of the roadway. Heiderick died at the scene.” Time of death is listed as 3:24 am.
Police add, “speed appears to be a factor.”
Heiderick was driving a 2006 Kia Rio. Her license listed the 21000 block of Escondido Way North as home.
