DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2023 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The 75-year-old woman who police say plowed into four people crossing Atlantic Avenue on New Year’s Eve may now face vehicular homicide charges. BocaNewsNow.com has learned that one of the victims just died.
Birinder Singh was critically injured when he was struck by Nadya Pearlman’s Mercedes around 11 p.m. on New Year’s Eve on Atlantic near the Intracoastal. He was hospitalized ever since. His death was reported on February 14th. Pearlman was only charged with careless driving and fined $166. She is contesting that ticket.
Delray Beach Police continue to release scant information about the incident. BocaNewsNow.com threatened legal action against the City of Delray Beach when — nearly four weeks after the crash — the police department refused to release details. The City has not acknowledged the death, nor publicly discussed additional charges. We obtained the incident report and previously published this unredacted portion:
“Post Miranda I advised Pearlman that several independent witnesses on scene advised officers that they observed her to be videoing on her cell phone at the time of the crash. Due to the phone being potential evidence and possibly being the causation of the crash, the phone was seized for evidentiary purposes. Pearlman stated that she was driving down East Atlantic Avenue wishing people Happy New Year While using her phone to video. Pearlman later admitted she was in fact on the phone at the time of the crash and gave consent to search her phone to include her videos.”
Even before the victim’s death, a judge ordered Pearlman to appear for a “careless driving trial” on March 8th. Read that order, below. We will update if charges are amended or updated following the victim’s death.
