BOCA RATON, FL (WFLX) - Police said a 20-year-old man died Thursday night after a fender bender sent his car into a canal.

Police said Nicholas R. Rozs was traveling southbound at a high rate of speed on South Military Trail in a 1992 Mercedes. He quickly closed in on Marilyn Gordon, 64, who was driving a 1999 Ford Taurus.

Rozs braked, collided with a guard rail, struck Gordon's rear bumper, and flipped into the L38 canal.

Rozs was transported to Delray Medical Center where he died.
