A silver SUV was t-boned by a car near the intersection of Northwest 20th Street and North University Drive Monday, according to both drivers.

There were no injuries.

At about 9 p.m., a silver Toyota RAV4 traveling northbound on North University Drive was coming through the intersection when a Silver Toyota Avalon, traveling westbound, collided with the RAV4.

The SUV spun 180 degrees rolling onto its roof, stopping on the median near the northbound lane.

“I was changing the station on the radio, so I wasn’t fully paying attention,” junior ocean engineering major Victoria Jatton said. She wasn’t involved in the crash, but saw it happen.

Junior business major Marquell Wagner was the driver of the RAV4.

He said he was leaving his economics class in General Classroom South before he turned left from East University Drive.

“[I] just got out of class, was feeling good and then [the crash] happened,” Wagner said.

He was taken out of the vehicle by Boca Raton fire-rescue department personnel, and was checked out on-scene by paramedics.

Hung Phan, 52, was the driver of the other car. He said he was unharmed in the incident. Phan was traveling to the college of nursing building to pick up his daughter.

“Immediately I was shocked, I was scared, my heart was beating,” Wagner said of the crash. “But now, I’m alright.”
