Boca Post has been notified that a GoFundMe page has been set up for the surviving victim of this accident, Claudia Agudelo.

We are told that Agudelo has multiple surgeries scheduled to rebuild her badly injured leg. Agudelo has a long road ahead of her.

Claudia’s sister has set up a GoFundMe in which she says, “Her husband passed away at the moment of the accident, leaving my sister with deep pain in her soul and serious physical injuries. My sister suffered a fracture of her left leg, compromising her knee and ankle, sternum, and fractured ribs. So far, she has had two surgeries to try to rebuild her leg. My sister is currently using a wheelchair until her doctor determines that she is able to walk again. For obvious reasons, my sister is not able to work until she’s fully recovered.”

So far, more than $2,600 have been raised for Claudia but she is still facing a long road ahead after this devastating accident.

Original Story – 4/24/22

BOCA RATON, FL – Boca Post (BocaPost.com) — A critical accident shut down traffic for hours near Military Trail and Boca Delray Boulevard at the entrance of Boca Delray Country Club on Saturday afternoon.

The accident happened after the driver of a 2007 Hona Civic, Efrain Garcia-Poveda, 49, from Plantation, was said to have “lost control of the vehicle” which caused it to veer left. The Civic then collided with a 2011 Honda Odyssey, driven by Aaron Latham, 47, of Boca Raton, who was not injured badly.

The passenger of the Honda Civic, Claudia Agudelo, 47, of Plantation, had to be extricated from the vehicle along with the driver. Both were transported by ground to Delray Medical Center as trauma alerts due to the nature of their injuries.

Sources tell Boca Post that the driver was unresponsive and paramedics had to perform CPR on him.

According to a preliminary accident report from the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office, investigators suspect drugs and/or alcohol may be to blame.
