BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The driver who struck and killed a golf cart driver on Yamato Road in April is now suing that driver’s employer — Boca West Country Club.

According to the suit just filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court, Analee Ehrlein and her family are suing Boca West after Frisler Moise inexplicably drove his golf car into a lane of traffic on Yamato Road on April 9th, 2021. Analee Ehrlein was driving and struck Moise. Her kids were in the car. Ehrlein and her children, according to the suit, were seriously injured.

BocaNewsNow.com covered the crash that led to a lengthy shutdown of roads in the area.

Analee Ehrlein was not charged — investigators determined she did nothing wrong. Simply put: there was no expectation that a rogue golf cart would drive from a sidewalk onto Yamato Road which is one of the area’s busiest east-west corridors.

Moise, according to the suit, should have never been driving a golf cart — or any motor vehicle — for Boca West. Moise, now dead, had a questionable driving history that should have raised red flags to Boca West’s management team.

From the strongly-worded suit filed by attorneys at Romano Law Group:

“At approximately 2:50 p.m. on April 9, 2021, an employee of the Defendant, BOCA WEST COUNTRY CLUB, INC., while operating the subject golf cart motor vehicle on the south shoulder or sidewalk of eastbound Yamato Road in or near Boca Raton, Palm Beach County, Florida, suddenly and without warning abruptly entered the lanes of travel for eastbound Yamato Road traffic and entered the center lane, thereby traveling directly into the path and right of way of the vehicle being driven by the Plaintiff, ANALEE EHRLEIN, causing a collision between the golf cart and the Plaintiff’s Acura vehicle occupied by the Plaintiff, ANALEE EHRLEIN and her children.

At all times material hereto, Defendant BOCA WEST COUNTRY CLUB, INC. employed Frisler Moise (now deceased) and entrusted him with a company golf cart motor vehicle.

As such, Defendant BOCA WEST COUNTRY CLUB, INC. knew or should have known with the exercise of reasonable care that their employment of Frisler Moise and entrustment of a company golf cart motor vehicle to him may require him to drive on the public roadways of Florida, and that he would pose a danger to the motoring public.
Before the collision, Frisler Moise had a driving history with the company that should have put this
Defendant on notice of his impermissible and improper golf cart motor vehicle driving habits and the danger that he posed to the public.

At all times material hereto, Defendant BOCA WEST COUNTRY CLUB, INC. never adequately supervised its employee and golf cart operator, never made a detailed inquiry of him and his improper operation of the company’s vehicles, never fully investigated his driving history record, and did not adequately instruct nor train him in safe driving procedures before entrusting the subject golf cart motor vehicle to him. If Defendant had made these inquiries and conducted proper training and supervision, it would have discovered that their employee had a
history of bad driving habits while operating a company golf cart vehicle while in the course and scope of his employment, and that he posed a danger to the driving public.”

The lawsuit seeks in excess of $30,000 — the statutory minimum for filing in Palm Beach County Circuit Court. Boca West Country Club has not yet filed a response to the suit.
