The driver who was critically injured in a crash Saturday in suburban Delray Beach has been identified as a 49-year-old Delray Beach man, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said.
Michael Patton was taken to Delray Medical Center after the accident, which happened around 5:30 p.m.
Patton was driving his 2006 Lexus southbound on Hagen Ranch Road when he ran a stop sign at Atlantic Avenue.
The front end of the Lexus struck a guard rail, the sheriff's office said. The car crashed through the rain and into the canal.
Patton was not wearing a seat belt when the car crashed, the sheriff's office said. Neither drugs nor alcohol appear to have been a cause of the crash.
