The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said a 70-year-old woman died Friday morning in a four-vehicle crash.   

A PBSO report said at 7:30 a.m. a 2009 TSX Acura was traveling west on SE Avenue G, attempting to turn left and travel south on South Main St.

At the same time, a 2011 Ford F-150 was traveling south on South Main St., approaching the intersection of SE Ave G. 

A third vehicle, a 2008 Lexus IS 250 and a fourth vehicle, a 2015 Ford E-350, were both traveling north on South Main St. near SE Avenue G prior to the collision.

As the Ford F-150 headed south through the intersection of South Main St. and SE Ave G, the Acura turned into the F-150’s lane, causing the wreck.

During the impact, the right front of the Acura impacted the left rear of the Ford-150.

This collision redirected the Ford F-150 in a southeasterly direction, over a concrete median and into the northbound lanes of travel of South Main St.

Upon entering the inside lane of travel of South Main St., the Ford F-150 was immediately struck by the Lexus. The front of the Ford E-350 impacted the driver’s side of the Ford F-150.

While at St. Mary’s Medical Center, a passenger in the Ford E-350, Diana T. Bain, 70, of Pahokee, Fla., died from her injuries.  The drivers of the Ford F-150 and Lexus were also taken to the hospital with injuries.
