DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office confirms to BocaNewsNow.com that six people died in the late night crash at the intersection of US441/SR7 and Atlantic Avenue. The initial report from scanner traffic indicated two deaths.
Names of the dead have not been released. They are identified as two males, two females, and two unidentified.
According to PBSO: “A BMW M5 driven by Noah T. Galle, 17, of Wellington was traveling northbound in the 14000 block of South State Road 7, at a high rate of speed, within the inside lane of travel. A Nissan Rogue was traveling ahead of the BMW in the 14073 block of South State Road 7, within the inside lane of travel. As the Rogue continued northbound, the BMW overtook and collided with the Rogue. During the collision, the front of the BMW impacted the rear of the Rogue.
Immediately after impact, the BMW was redirected to the northeast (while rotating clockwise) over the outside lane of travel, and onto the eastern shoulder of South State Road 7 where it came to final rest facing east.
Immediately after impact, the Rogue was redirected to the northwest (while rotating clockwise) of the inside of the roadway and into the center median. As the Rogue traveled down into the grass and dirt center median, it began flipping and rolling over before coming to final rest (upside down) within the center median facing northwest.
The Nissan Rogue at the time of the collision had six occupants. As a result of the collision, five were declared deceased while on scene by Palm Beach County Fire Rescue while a sixth was declared deceased at Delray Medical Center.”
PBSO says Galle was impaired by “alcohol or drugs” at the time of the crash, which his attorney disputes.
