NEW: Woman, 58, killed in morning two-car crash in suburban West Palm


A 58-year-old Hialeah woman was killed late Saturday morning in a two-car collision, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

Carmen Martinez was traveling eastbound on Forest Hill Boulevard when she was rear-ended by a 2011 Hyundai Genesis. The car was driven by 22-year-old Alexander Acosta if West Palm Beach, also headed east.

Acosta, whom deputies report was driving at a high rate of speed, “violently impacted” the back of Martinez’s 2008 Mitsubishi Outlander, sending it spinning more than 200 feet into the middle lane and coming to rest in the outside eastbound lane.

Deputies say alcohol is being investigated as a factor in the wreck.

Acosta and Jorge Diaz, 55, of North Miami, a passenger in Martinez’s car, were both treated for minor injuries.
