PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — Troopers have identified two people killed in a deadly crash in Palm Beach County on Friday morning.

The Florida Highway Patrol said a Chevy Lumina driven by 50-year-old Sylvester Gibson was traveling eastbound on Runyon Village Road around 5:45 a.m.

As the Lumina turned left onto U.S. 441, a Ford Explorer driven by 52-year-old Samuel Solis Patino smashed into it.

Troopers said Patino failed to see the Lumina until it was directly in front of him.

Gibson and his passenger, 41-year-old Sharon White, were pronounced dead at the scene. Patino suffered minor injuries.

The crash remains under investigation.
