LAKE WORTH, FL – Boca Post (BocaPost.com) — The Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office tells Boca Post that they are investigating a head-on collision that killed 40-year-old Jimmy Anglade on 6th avenue Monday night.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office tells Boca Post that at approximately 10:58 PM on Monday, September 26th, 2022, deputies responded to the area of 2700 6th Avenue South in Lake Worth.

Responding PBSO district deputies and Palm Beach County Fire Rescue found two vehicles that were apparently involved in a head-on collision.

PBSO Traffic Homicide Unit detectives were notified and began an investigation into the accident. Detectives tell us that 20-year-old Jamie Padgett was driving a 2021 Audi eastbound on 6th Avenue South, in the westbound lane just before the crash.  At the same time, 40-year-old Jimmy Anglade was traveling westbound on 6th Avenue South.

The front of Padgett’s Audi collided with the front of Anglade’s car in the westbound lane.  The Audi pushed Anglade’s car eastbound and both vehicles came to rest together in the westbound lane, east of the area of impact.

Anglade was pronounced dead on the scene by Palm Beach County Fire Rescue.  All occupants of the Audi, including two passengers, 19-year-old Lana Wheeler and 20-year-old Amari Johnson, were transported to the hospital for injuries sustained during the collision.

PBSO indicates that charges are pending and that Padgett was under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.
