UPDATE 11:06 a.m. Tuesday, June 1, 2021: PBSO just identified the two people killed in the Mercedes. They are Goran Zgonjanin, 58, and Anka Zgonjanin, 56, both of Tiburon Circle in Boca Raton.
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The teenager who killed himself and four others — including two middle school students — in a horrific crash Sunday already had two tickets in just two years of driving. Both tickets were issued within 70 days of the fatal crash.
Ramiro Gomez, 18, according to police, was speeding on Camino Real when he lost control of his Hyundai Genesis near Sanibel in West Boca Raton. BocaNewsNow.com was first to report on the crash which was called in at 12:35 a.m. Sunday.
Gomez’s Hyundai rolled over, according to police, landing on a Mercedes C250. The two Mercedes occupants — both in their 50s — were killed. They have not yet been identified publicly by police. Gomez, 13 year old Brielle Snowden, and 14 year old Sebastian Rivas were also killed in the Hyundai. Both are middle school students.
While it remains unclear why a 13 year old girl and 14 year old boy were driving with an 18 year old at 12:35 Sunday morning, BocaNewsNow.com has learned that Gomez was already building a history of violations.
Just a month before the fatal crash — On April 25th — Gomez was cited by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office for running a red light at 3:06 in the morning. Gomez allegedly turned right without stopping at Powerline and SW 18th Street — not far from the scene of his deadly crash.
A month before that, Boca Raton Police cited Gomez for altering the exhaust system of his 2013 Hyundai — the same car in which he would eventually die. That citation was issued March 21st at 8:17 p.m. in the 2000 block of North Federal Highway in Boca Raton. Gomez eventually provided proof that the exhaust issue was resolved and the case was dismissed.
Gomez, of Deerfield Beach, did not receive any citations in Broward or Miami-Dade Counties, according to a record search by BocaNewsNow.com.
In addition to Gomez, Snowden and Rivas who were killed, police say four other teens were also in the Hyundai at the time of the overnight crash. Sienna Judovits, Keira Safris, Dariya Hill, and Ardi Zeqiri were all injured.
