Acreage Woman Arrested In Connection With March Crash

An Acreage woman was arrested Wednesday in connection with a traffic crash that left a 9-year-old girl in critical condition last month.

According to a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office report, a warrant was placed for the arrest of 28-year-old Dynasdy Williams for a DUI (driving under the influence) crash with serious bodily injury. Williams turned herself in to a deputy and was taken to the Palm Beach County Jail.

The arrest stems from a March 4 incident when Williams struck 9-year-old Melanie Ponce de Leon, a student at Golden Grove Elementary School, as she was walking home from her bus stop on 130th Avenue North. Ponce de Leon was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
