Family awaits info on son's fatal crash

Friends and family paid their respects over the weekend at the funeral of a Wellington man killed in a recent car crash.

 

There's a makeshift shrine at the corner of 120th Avenue South and Lake Worth Road where 23 year old Scott Wilson died. Officials say another driver, 46 year old John Goodman, ran a stop sign and slammed into Wilson's car.

A Houston newspaper says Goodman, a polo-playing multi-millionaire, once had a cocaine problem, according to divorce court records.

And there are also reports that Goodman bought a round of drinks at a bar in Wellington that night before the accident.

"I don't have any comments right now. As I said I'm just concentrating on the next phase of it. I haven't slept very much. And I've had very little sleep in the last week or so, and I'm just trying to stay strong for the family and for my daughter. And right now is when I'm starting to just really, really miss him," said Lili Wilson, mother of crash victim.

Goodman is the founder and owner of the International Polo Club Palm Beach in Wellington. Authorities say a blood sample was drawn from Goodman at the hospital the night of the crash, and it is being tested to determine if he was impaired.

We went to Goodman's home but could not get past the front gate, and could not reach him for comment. He has not been charged so far. A sheriff's official says investigations in fatal crashes can take six to nine months.
