A 66-year-old suburban Delray Beach woman died after being injured Sunday night in a car crash, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office reported Thursday.
Authorities say Rique Karmazin died Monday morning at Delray Medical Center, hours after a crash at Atlantic Avenue and El Clair Ranch Road west of the city limits.
Karmazin was driving north on El Clair Ranch when a westbound 2014 Kia Optima went through a red light and struck Karmazin’s 2018 Honda SUV on the passenger side, according to a sheriff’s crash report.
The Kia driver, identifed as Richard Nemeth, 55, of Delray Beach, sustained minor injuries, the report said.
Neither drugs nor alcohol were believed to be a factor in the crash, authorities said. The sheriff’s report does not indicate whether any charges are pending.
