A 78-year-old man was killed Friday in a crash near the Mall at Wellington Green, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.
The man was identified Saturday as Howard Tommie of Okeechobee. The crash occurred at about 4:15 p.m. at State Road 7 and a service road next to the mall, according to a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office crash report.
Tommie was driving north on State Road 7 when he failed to yield to a westbound vehicle using the service road, the report said. He may have suffered a medical episode just prior to the crash, investigators said.
The driver of the other vehicle, Dragica Badju, 58, of suburbna West Palm Beach, sustained minor injuries, the sheriff’s office said.
