BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boca Raton woman involved in a crash allegedly displayed “droopy eyelids” as she told police she knew nothing about a crash that occurred in the area of Federal Highway and Palmetto Park Road. Now, Victoria Do Amaral of 13th Street is facing “hit and run” and DUI charges.
From the Florida Highway Patrol incident report reviewed by BocaNewsNow.com:
“On November 23rd, 2021 at approximately 1:54 AM I was on routine patrol traveling westbound on Palmetto Park Road passing Federal Highway. As I passed the intersection, I heard a vehicle collision and observed a White Jeep traveling eastbound bearing license plate (California) (redacted). I conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle and the vehicle pulled over to the right shoulder just west of Ocean Boulevard about a half of a mile east of the scene.
I approached the Driver’s side of the vehicle and observed a White Female later identified by her California Driver’s License as Victoria Ivana Do Amaral, Date of Birth 03/10/1999. I asked Ms. Do Amaral if she was aware that she was involved in a
crash and Ms. Do Amaral advised no. Ms. Do Amaral exhibited sluggish behavior by looking disoriented and having droopy eyelids.
I asked Ms. Do Amaral to step outside the vehicle and Ms. Do Amaral seemed uncoordinated and clumsy. While Ms. Do Amaral was out of the vehicle her clothes were disheveled and soiled. There seemed to be vomit on Ms. Do Amaral’s jacket and she did not have footwear.”
FHP says Do Amaral had issues with multiple field sobriety tests, then provided breath samples of .182 and .172. The legal limit in Florida is .08.
Do Amaral was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on November 23rd at 8:17 a.m. She was released on her own recognizance several hours later. A court date is pending.
