COCONUT CREEK, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Florida Highway Patrol says Boynton Beach resident David Bukofzer, 54, was killed Wednesday evening in a multi-vehicle crash on Florida’s Turnpike.
According to investigators, Bukofzer was driving his 2007 Dodge southbound — in the area of Hillsboro Blvd., — when he lost control of his vehicle.
The following is the police narrative of the crash — note Vehicle 1 is Bukofzer, Vehicle 2 is Bobbi Nino of Miami, Vehicle 3 is Kevin Grubb of Summerland Key, FL.
FHP NARRATIVE: Vehicle 1 (V-1) was traveling south on southbound State Road 91 (Florida’s Turnpike) upon the inside paved travel lane. Vehicle 2 (V-2) was traveling south on southbound State Road 91 upon the center paved travel lane. Vehicle 3 (V-3) was traveling south on southbound State Road 91 upon unknown paved travel lane. For reasons still under investigation, the driver of V-1, (D-1), failed to maintain safe control of his vehicle, causing V-1 to veer towards the right as it traveled in a westerly direction, into the path of V-2. As a result of the aforementioned action, the front of V-2 struck the right passenger side of V-1.
After this T-bone type collision occurred, V-1 rotated in a clockwise direction as it traveled in a southwesterly direction. V-2 also rotated in a clockwise direction as it traveled in a southwesterly direction, post-collision. V-1 came to rest facing in a southwesterly direction, straddling the intermittent white lines which separated the inside and center paved travel lanes. V-2 came to rest facing in a northwesterly direction, straddling the intermittent white lines which separated the inside and center paved travel lanes. For reasons still under investigation, the driver of V-3 (D-3) failed to safely maneuver around V-2 resulting in a side angle collision between the aforementioned vehicles.
As a result of the aforementioned collision, V-2 rotated in a counter-clockwise direction causing the front left bumper area of V-2 to collide with the rear right bumper area of V-1. V-1/V-2 both came to final rest, facing in a southwesterly direction, straddling the intermittent white
lines, with V-2 slightly to the north of V-1. After colliding with V-2, V- continued to travel in a southerly direction, coming to final rest facing in a southwesterly direction, upon the outside paved travel lane. The roadway was reportedly wet at the time this crash occurred. D-1 was transported to Broward Health North where he succumbed to injuries sustained as a result of the crash. The crash remains under investigation.
