WEST PALM BEACH, FL – Boca Post (BocaPost.com) — A 68-year-old woman was killed and several others injured in a West Palm Beach crash that occurred early on Friday, October 28th, 2022.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office tells Boca Post that just after 7 AM on Friday, October 28th, 2022, deputies responded to the area of Haverhill Road and Sunny Lane in unincorporated West Palm Beach in reference to a two-vehicle accident.

Responding PBSO district deputies and Palm Beach County Fire Rescue located a total of 5 victims among the two vehicles involved. 68-year-old Maria Tolento was declared deceased at the scene. Other victims reported serious and minor injuries, according to PBSO.

PBSO Traffic Homicide Unit detectives were notified and began an investigation into the incident.

Detectives tell us that a Ford Taurus, driven by Arturo Tolento, was traveling southbound on Haverhill Road attempting to turn east onto Sunny Lane. Meanwhile, a Mitsubishi Montero, driven by Jerry Mainer, was traveling northbound on Haverhill Road.

As Tolento turned his vehicle, it entered the travel path of Mainer’s Montero. Mainer was unable to maneuver to avoid collision therefore the front of his vehicle impacted the passenger side of Tolento’s Taurus. The Taurus is redirected northbound and comes to rest at the intersection of Haverhill Road and Royal Court South. The Montero came to rest facing west across the northbound lanes.
