UPDATE 1:40 p.m: After our report revealing that FHP was not releasing information about the high impact crash in West Boca Raton more than 48 hours after the incident, the agency finally released the following narrative. We thank FHP for the information:
Driver of Vehicle 1 (D-1) – Female, 21 YOA; Boca Raton, Florida; Incapacitating Injuries
Driver of Vehicle 2 (D-2) – Male, 70 YOA; Ft. Boca Raton,Florida; Minor injuries
V-1 was traveling northbound on S Montoya Circle approaching Boca Del Mar Drive. V-2 was traveling eastbound on Boca Del Mar Drive through the intersection at S Montoya Circle. For reasons still under investigation, D-1 drove through stop sign into the path of V-2, resulting in a T-bone type traffic crash. The front of V-1 struck the right side of V-2. D-1 was totally ejected from V-1 as a result of the impact with V-2. D-1sustained incapacitating injuries as a result of the traffic crash and was transported to Delray Medical Center via Trauma Hawk for medical treatment. D-2 sustained minor injuries as a result of the traffic crash and was transported to Boca West Medical Center via Palm Beach County Fire Rescue for medical treatment. This is still an ongoing investigation.
UPDATE 12:02 p.m: Proving the point that when officials say nothing, stories spread that are not always completely accurate: one of the people involved in the crash just reached out to BocaNewsNow.com to share what FHP still refuses to share. According to the victim: A woman allegedly displayed a gun to multiple cars while driving on the Turnpike in Broward County. That woman, whose name we have but are withholding for now, then ended up in the area of Boca Rio Road and Montoya Circle where she blew through a stop sign and slammed into another vehicle. The alleged “gun woman” was ejected from her car which ended up hitting her and pinning her against a wall. She was knocked unconscious. Paramedics intubated the woman and airlifted her to Delray Medical Center where the hospital apparently has no record of her name as being a patient… The driver of the other car was treated and released by West Boca Medical Center.
We are keeping the original version of our reporting, below, as a reminder to Florida Highway Patrol: if you don’t release information, erroneous facts spread.
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — It’s been two days since a high-impact, bizarre critical crash shut down Montoya Circle in West Boca Raton, and Florida Highway Patrol is still not releasing substantive information on the incident. FHP, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, is the lead agency on this case.
BocaNewsNow.com learned from sources connected to the rescue response that a woman allegedly opened fire from her moving vehicle on Florida’s Turnpike in Broward County. She ended up, according to sources, following a car as it exited the Turnpike and proceeded to Montoya Circle. She allegedly crashed into that car at a high rate of speed, knocking herself unconscious and flipping the other car — pinning a man inside. The woman, believed to be in her 20s, was intubated and airlifted to Delray Medical Center. The man’s condition was unclear.
BocaNewsNow.com asked acting PIO Sgt. James Kudla multiple times for information since hours after the incident, but he provided none. Upon copying senior FHP leadership on our request, he ultimately responded Friday that the shooting — witnessed by multiple callers to BocaNewsNow — may not have happened. He did not immediately respond to our request for a narrative of events.
We will update this report once Kudla responds with official information.
