A suburban Boca Raton man sustained serious injuries early Sunday morning in a collision between a Lexus and pickup truck in suburban Delray Beach. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office stated that the Lexus was driving the wrong way before dawn Sunday when it collided with the truck. A sheriff’s report revealed that alcohol impairment “is a likely factor in this crash.”
Shortly after 4:30 a.m., Tung Thanh Truong, fifty-five, was travelling near the intersection of State Road 7 and Atlantic Avenue. Truong was operating his 1999 Lexus ES300 in the inside northbound lane of State Road 7, but driving in a southbound direction. He was about one mile south of Atlantic Avenue when the front left side of his vehicle crashed into the front left side of a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup truck travelling northbound.
Upon impact, the vehicles spun counterclockwise. Truong’s vehicle came to rest near the center median and the pickup spun to a rest on the east grassy shoulder of the road. Palm Beach County Fire Rescue crews removed Truong from his Lexus and transported him to Delray Medical Center. The sheriff’s office reported that Truong remains in the hospital, where he is being treated for serious injuries. According to the report, the pickup driver left the scene before rescue crews arrived and is still unidentified.
