West Boca, FL – Truck Accident on Florida’s Turnpike near Glades Rd Takes One Life

West Boca, FL (September 14, 2023) –  A motor vehicle accident took place on Wednesday morning in the West Boca area that claimed the life of a man from Lake Worth Beach.

The crash occurred just after 10:30 a.m. on September 13.

According to reports from the Florida Highway Patrol, a 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 pickup truck was traveling on Florida’s Turnpike during the morning hours. For unknown reasons, the vehicle collided with the rear of a 2016 Ford Transit van on the southbound side of the road. After the collision, the driver of the van exited his vehicle when he was struck near Glades Road. The impact of the crash sent the man and the van into the middle of the road. A box truck came through and then struck one of the vehicles.

A 2020 Mercedes-Benz GL E350 SUV then collided with the front of the truck. A 2008 Mercury Mountaineer SUV then crashed into their vehicles, causing the van to flip over onto its side and spin around.

One person involved in the accident, identified as a man from Lake Worth Beach, was fatally injured in the crash. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

All of the other drivers involved in the accident suffered injuries. Those who required further medical attention were transported to local hospitals.

The crash is being investigated by Florida Highway Patrol at this time.

We hope all of the injured victims recover quickly.

Our sympathies go out to the family of the man who died in this crash.
