Shocking Car Accidents Claim Lives of Two Seniors in West Palm Beach!

WEST PALM BEACH —Police in West Palm Beach said that two people in their 60s and 70s died and three other people, including a child, were hurt in separate car accidents on Monday.

The first accident happened around 6 a.m. on Monday in the 2700 block of Village Drive. Two walkers were hurt. A city police report says that Michael Bullen, 65, and Carmen Louis, 60, were walking on a sidewalk near Brandywine Road when they stepped into the road to escape getting wet by sprinklers.

A 67-year-old woman from West Palm Beach was driving south in a Kia Sportage when she hit Louis and Bullen. Louis died where he was. Bullen was taken to the emergency center at St. Mary’s Medical Center because he was hurt badly.

As of Friday, no charges had been filed in the case, and cops said it didn’t look like alcohol or drugs were involved in the crash.

Police say a 70-year-old woman was killed Monday afternoon when the car she was riding in hit a tractor-trailer. The accident happened on southbound Congress Avenue near HCA Florida-JFK North Hospital at about 1:15 p.m.

Police say that a 2009 Honda Civic was going north on Congress when it turned into the path of a tractor-trailer driven by a man from Riviera Beach who was 20 years old.

Even though rescuers from West Palm Beach Fire Rescue tried to save the life of a passenger in the Honda, Patricia Williams, 70, from the suburbs of West Palm Beach, she died.

The driver of the Honda, 66-year-old Ceola Williams Jr., and a 4-year-old girl were both taken to St. Mary’s to get minor injuries treated. As police looked into what happened, the crash shut down southbound Congress from Riviera Beach to 45th Street for several hours.

Police said that no criminal charges were filed and that neither alcohol nor drugs were thought to have caused the crash.
