Patricia Lee Pereira, 72, is in critical condition after being flown to St. Marys Medical Center following a three-vehicle accident in West Palm Beach on Saturday, Dec. 27.
Pereira was driving eastbound on Southern Blvd. when her vehicle was struck by a car driven by Cristian Camilo Osorio Naranjo. Naranjo was trying to turn left onto Carolina Drive from Southern Blvd. when the vehicle suddenly struck another car in the center lane. Naranjos vehicle spun out into the westbound lanes of Southern Blvd. and struck Pereiras car.
Rescue crews had to cut Pereira out of the vehicle. Naranjo and his passenger sustained minor injuries during the incident. All parties involved in the wreck had been wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash.
