A suburban Boynton Beach man was killed Tuesday morning in a two-vehicle crash on State Road 7 just north of Clint Moore Road in West Boca.

At 6:04 a.m., the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said Dessin Fils, 55, was driving a 2007 Toyota Highlander southbound in the 16800 block of State Road 7.

A 2014 Mazda CX5, driven by Branka Spasojevic, 40, of Margate, Fla., was traveling northbound on State Road 7.

PBSO said Fils steered his vehicle to the left for unknown reasons, driving across the median and into the driver-side front of the Mazda.

This caused the Mazda to overturn.

Fils was transported to Delray Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. Spasojevic was transported to West Boca Medical Center for minor injuries. PBSO said next of kin has been notified.
