Woman killed crossing road

A woman was killed Wednesday night after she was struck by a sport utility vehicle west of Lake
Worth, a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman said. Dianna Gonzalez, 40, of West Palm Beach attempted to cross to the south side of l0th Avenue North, east of Florida Mango
Road, at 8:36 p.m., according to a report. Because she wasn’t crossing at a crosswalk, she halted traffic in one of the eastbound lanes. When Gonzalez tried crossing the second of two eastbound lanes, she was struck by Abel Rosales, 35, of Boynton Beach, who was driving a 1999 Honda CRV. Gonzales was taken by ambulance to Delray Medical Center,where she was pronounced dead. Traffic homicide investigators determined that Gonzalez was either under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the accident, according to the report.
