BOCA RATON, FL –A hit and run which has turned fatal took place last month on August 12, at the corner of Ponderosa Drive and Palmetto Park Road in Boca Raton. The incident initially left a 75-year-old woman Karen R. Kesner critically injured.

While Kesner was laying in the street, the vehicle initially stopped when a second vehicle, shortly behind the first, also hit Kesner, running her over striking her with its tires and undercarriage.

According to witnesses at the scene, the drivers of both vehicles stopped and talked with one another momentarily before both fleeing the scene eastbound on Palmetto Park Road. The victim was transported to Delray Medical Center where she was listed in critical condition.
