A visitor from Georgia was killed and a Boynton Beach woman received multiple minor injuries when their cars collided in Ocean Ridge early July 18.
Luci D. Menegolo, 55, of Kennesaw, Ga., was driving north on Ocean Ridge Boulevard about 2:12 a.m. that Saturday when her 2008 Nissan SUV veered into the southbound lane as she was negotiating the curve at the Boynton Inlet, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.
She collided head-on with a 2007 Chevrolet sedan being driven by Cherry M. Cheek, 49.
Menegolo, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was thrown from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.
Cheek was treated and released at Delray Medical Center.
Investigators suspect Menegolo was drunk, but a Sheriff's Office spokesman said alcohol impairment results will not be available for “a couple months.”
