Three People Transported to Boca Raton Hospital After Serious T-Bone Accident
On Saturday night in Boca Raton a car driven by Jordan Trouf T-Boned another car containing Philip and Joan Eckstein. 79 year old, Philip Eckstein, was critically injured in the car accident. The accident occurred at the intersection of Lyons and Crescent Lakes in Boca Raton. Eckstein had a stop sign in his lane but Trouf did not. Preliminary Police reports put the accident blame on Trouf even though he appeared to have the right away.
Here is a summary of the Boca Raton Police Accident Report
Eckstein was traveling southbound on Lyons Road and began turning left onto SW 14th Street. Trouf was traveling northbound on Lyons Road and was approaching SW 14th Street and Eckstein. As Eckstein turned, he was unaware of the impending danger from Trouf, which was being driven faster than the 40 mph speed limit. During the crash, the front of Trouf’s car impacted into the right front of Eckstein’s car. Both vehicles were redirected onto the northeast shoulder of the intersection. The three parties were all transported to Delray Medical Center for medical treatment. Eckstein remains in critical condition. The Boca Raton police report also included a note that Alcohol and narcotic impairment is considered a factor in the actions of Trouf and toxicology is pending. The actual speed of impact will need to be determined by the Boca Raton car accident scene investigators. It is highly likely that the reported speed of Trouf’s car is not the actual speed in which he was traveling. There are also no records in the report that show the occupants were wearing seat belts. There has also been a report by a post-accident witness that Philip’s wife, Joan, told him to gas it because he had pulled in front of the oncoming car driven by Trouf. Boca Raton police are interviewing all of the car accident witnesses. The Boca Raton, FL personal injury attorneys at The Broderick Law Firm advise drivers to be very careful while driving at night.
