(PALM SPRINGS, Florida)– A crash early Wednesday morning left one Boca Raton woman dead in Palm Springs, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office says a Dodge Challenger, driven by Olivia Maly, 28, was traveling on Forest Hill Boulevard at a “high rate of speed” just before 2 a.m.

Another car, an Acura ILX, driven by Patrice Sajous, 38, of Palm Beach County, was attempting to cross the intersection at Military Trail and collided with the Challenger.

Maly then crashed into a power pole and flipped her vehicle over, ultimately landing upside down.

Paramedics who arrived at the crash site, pronounced Maly dead on the scene, and Sajous had suffered from serious injuries.

Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office investigators suspect Maly may have been under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the crash.

Sajous is scheduled to undergo surgery on Thursday.
