Marchman Act Blog Local News: Angela Stracar DUI charges

A driver involved in a crash in which her SUV went airborne and landed on top of a car, crushing the father and daughter inside, has been charged with two counts of DUI manslaughter and two counts of vehicular homicide.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office arrested Angela Stracar, 25, who lives west of Boca Raton, on Thursday.

The crash happened on May 21 at the entrance to the Boca Isles South development at Cain Boulevard and Point Royal Drive, west of Boca Raton.

Killed in the crash were Odette Kane, 51, and Robert Kane, 79, who were returning home from picking up take-out for dinner, a relative said at the time. The Kanes and Stracar lived on the same street, Dinner Key Drive.  Investigators said Stracar lost control of her GMC SUV while traveling north on Cain Boulevard. She veered left onto the west shoulder of the road, crashed through the "Boca Isles South" sign and the SUV went airborne. The Kanes were pulling into the development when the SUV landed on their Cadillac, investigators said at the time.

Stracar was not seriously injured in the crash, officials said. Stracar's blood alcohol level was not released Thursday. She was being held without bond Thursday night at the Palm Beach County Jail.
