BELLE GLADE -- A Belle Glade woman was killed in a traffic accident on State Road 80 on Jan. 5, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office (PBSO).
According to the PBSO report, the accident occurred at 11:22 a.m. in the 388832 Block of State Road 80.
According to the PBSO report, a 2019 BMW, driven by Clara Brown Hessing, 61, of Belle Glade, was traveling eastbound within the inside lane of State Road 80 (just west of the intersection of State Road 15) approaching the driveway entrance of the Belle Glade service center (PBSO Dist 5 Substation/Glades Health Center) parking lot.
A 1996 Toyota Camery, driven by Micius Novembre, 68, was stopped at the stop bar of the Belle Glade service center driveway entrance, attempting to turn left and travel westbound on State Road 80, the report continues.
As the BMW approached the driveway, the Camery entered the intersection and collided with the BMW.
During the collision, the front of Camery impacted the passenger side rear area of BMW. As a result of the collision, the BMW “began a clockwise rotation before impacting the bull nose of the center median and rolling over while traveling eastbound,” the report states. As the BMW rolled over, the driver was ejected. The driver was pronounced deceased at the scene, the PBSO report states.
