WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- A Hialeah woman died Saturday night in a crash in suburban West Palm Beach.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says 58-year-old Carmen Martinez was killed when her 2008 Mitsubishi Outlander was struck by a 2011 Hyundai Genesis driven by 22-year-old Alexander Acosta of West Palm Beach.
PBSO says Acosta was driving eastbound on Forest Hill Boulevard at a high rate of speed at approximately 11:33 p.m. Saturday. Martinez was also traveling eastbound at a much lower speed.
The front of Acosta's vehicle violently impacted the rear of Martinez's vehicle.
She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Acosta and Martinez's passenger were transported to a hospital with minor injuries.
PBSO says alcohol was possibly a contributing factor in Acosta crashing.
