PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — One woman died and the driver was critically injured in a two-car crash Wednesday afternoon on Indiantown Road west of Jupiter, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said.

Judy Kriedler, 73, of Jupiter, was a passenger in a 2008 Toyota Tacoma driven by Daniel Kriedler, 72, of the same address, who was taken to St. Mary's Medical Center in critical condition.

Shortly before 5 p.m., the Toyota was traveling westbound on Indiantown Road.

A 2015 Sonota Hyundai, driven by a 16-year-old, was traveling northbound on 125th Avenue (Mellen Road), according to deputies.

The Toyota had a flashing yellow light and the Hyundai a flashing red light and a stop sign, deputies said.

As the Hyundai crossed the eastbound lanes, the driver did not observe the Toyota and pulled across into the westbound lanes, causing the collision, deputies said.

The Hyundai collided with the Toyota, sending the Toyota into a utility pole.

Judy Kriedler was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The driver of the Hyundai and her 8-year-old passenger had minor injuries.
