Sem Pratt Accident Claims Acreage Man

JAN. 8 — An Acreage man died last Tuesday morning following a traffic collision at the intersection of Seminole Pratt Whitney Road and Seminole Ridge Drive.
According to a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office report, at approximately 10:41 a.m. a 2011 Toyota Tundra being driven by 79-year-old Lorjuste Madeus was traveling eastbound on Seminole Ridge Drive and attempted to turn left on Seminole Pratt.

At the same time, a vehicle driven by 73-year-old Elaine Charbonneau was traveling southbound on Seminole Pratt, approaching the intersection. As Charbonneau entered the intersection, Madeus turned into the vehicle’s path, causing a collision. A passenger, 73-year-old Donald Charbonneau, was not wearing a seat belt and sustained injuries at the scene. He was taken to St. Mary’s Medical Center, where he died three days later as a result of his injuries.

The two drivers also sustained minor injuries and were taken to Palms West Hospital.
