Four people were transported to the hospital early Wednesday morning in Lake Worth after two cars collided. It was just after 2 a.m. when Tiffanie Hoffman slammed her 2006 Chevy Aveo into Bernice Greenblatt’s 2008 Honda Accord. Hoffman was driving west on Lake Worth Road and the crash happened at the intersection with Ohio Road, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
Eighty-nine-year-old Greenblatt, a resident of Lake Worth, was driving east on Lake Worth Road and was attempting to make a left onto Ohio Road. She attempted to make the left turn, but failed to yield to thirty-five-year-old Hoffman, a West Palm Beach resident. Fire Rescue spokesman Capt. Albert Borroto said that when Palm Beach County Fire Rescue arrived on scene, they had to utilize cutting tools to free Hoffman, Greenblatt, another woman, and a child from the two vehicles. Two of the individuals were transported Delray Medical Center, one to JFK Medical Center, and another to Palms West Hospital.

Intersections pose some of the biggest risks for all drivers. Faulty parts in a vehicle, speeding, and distracted driving can lead to particularly tragic consequences at an intersection.
