EXCLUSIVE: LISTEN TO MEDICS SPEAK WITH DELRAY MEDICAL CENTER.
No Mention Of Alcohol Or Drugs As Paramedics Transmit Condition To Waiting Trauma Team At Hospital.

DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A radio transmission from the ambulance apparently transporting Noah Galle from the scene of the fatal crash in West Delray Beach Thursday night to Delray Medical Center may be further proof that Galle was not under the influence of anything — despite claims made to the contrary by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. The radio transmission is below.
Six people died in the crash that PBSO initially pinned on Galle, claiming the 17-year-old from Wellington was driving at a high rate of speed and that “drugs or alcohol” were a factor in the crash. But Galle’s attorney, speaking exclusively to BocaNewsNow.com on Saturday, said that Galle had not consumed alcohol nor used drugs prior to the horrific wreck.
“There is no evidence that he was intoxicated on the night in question,” said Attorney Julian M. Kessel. “Prior to (the crash) he was at home with his family. There was no drinking or drug use of any type.”
An audio recording (below) obtained by BocaNewsNow.com, in a manner that does not violate HiPAA, reveals that a 17-year-old being rushed from the scene was given Fentanyl for pain but that “all his vitals are stable at the moment.” The communication, between paramedics and Delray Medical Center, makes no mention of the unidentified patient being under the influence of anything. This would be considered vital information for a “trauma alert” as a medical team prepares to treat the patient within seconds of arriving at the hospital. A “trauma alert” for someone under the influence of alcohol or drugs could result in a different treatment plan than for someone who is not.
Kessel had not heard the radio transmission obtained by BocaNewsNow.com during our interview, and would not speculate as to whether the patient described in the transmission was or was not Galle.
Galle has not been charged with anything. Traffic homicide investigations traditionally take months if not a year. Six people were killed in the crash on U.S. 441 north of Atlantic Avenue. Police initially stated that both vehicles — Galle’s BMW and a Nissan Rogue — were heading northbound on 441 when Galle allegedly tried to pass the Nissan Rogue but ended up making contact with the vehicle. The resulting crash left everyone in the Rogue dead, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. The investigation continues.
UPDATE: At the request of those connected to the case, we have removed the audio, but affirm that there is no mention of drugs or alcohol. …Developing…
