Girl Critically Injured During Acreage Crash

NOV. 15 — An Acreage girl was critically injured last Thursday morning after a traffic collision at the intersection of Citrus Grove and Hall boulevards in The Acreage.

According to a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office report, a 2009 Chrysler Town & Country car, driven by 32-year-old Christina Izquerido of The Acreage, was traveling eastbound on Citrus Grove Blvd. at approximately 7:20 a.m. Meanwhile, a 2002 Dodge truck, driven by 42-year-old Jeffery Barham of The Acreage, was traveling north on Hall Blvd.

According to the report, Izquerido ran the stop sign at the intersection, causing Barham to strike Izquerido’s vehicle near the rear passenger-side door. The Chrysler spun and hit a third vehicle, a 2007 Ford Fusion driven by 54-year-old Raul Paez of The Acreage, which was stopped at the stop sign, waiting to cross west onto Citrus Grove.

Seven-year-old Evangelina Reyes, Izquerido’s daughter, was flown to St. Mary’s Medical Center, where she was treated for critical head injuries. Two other occupants of the vehicle were treated for minor injuries.

There was no further information available at the time of the report.
