LAKE WORTH BEACH, FL - Authorities said one person was killed and two others injured Saturday in a high-speed car wreck in Palm Beach County.

According to WPTV, the accident happened on Lantana Road near Lake Worth Beach at 6:39 p.m.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said 20-year-old Guy Ludgy Barbancourt was driving a Tesla Model S westbound at a high rate of speed when he swerved across two lanes and went off the road.  The vehicle overturned and ended up in a parking lot.  Barbancourt, a Lake Worth Beach resident, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of a westbound Ford van had slowed down to avoid the Tesla, and a westbound BMW M4 collided with the back of the Ford, causing the BMW to overturn.

A passenger in the van, a 32-year-old man, was seriously injured while another passenger in the van sustained minor injuries.
