According to the PalmBeachPost.com, Pahokee resident Rosa Haro de Herrera, 56, died Saturday morning of injuries sustained in an automobile accident on Connors Highway in Belle Glade. The violent collision sent a total of six people to the hospital.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office reports that Robert Hanna was driving north on Connors Highway when he tried passing a truck on his left. Hanna’s Chevy hydroplaned at this point, spinning to the side and right into the path of Herrera’s vehicle which was moving south. Hanna suffered serious injuries and all four of Herrera’s passengers had to be taken to the hospital, including a 15-year old boy.
The fate of the remaining injured parties remains unknown at this time. We will update this post as more information becomes available.
