Just last June Robert Hodoba, 85, a resident of Flagler Beach for more than 20 years, lost his brother Albert in an accident in Pennsylvania. Albert was 89. Two years ago Hodoba and his wife Betty suffered the loss of their 57-year-old daughter Rosemary, who lived with her husband and daughter in Boynton Beach.
Last Tuesday, Robert Hodoba was driving his car on S.R. 100 just under the I-95 bridge when he crashed with another car turning onto the highway’s on-ramp. He was taken to Florida Hospital Flagler, then to Shands Hospital in Jacksonville, with critical injuries. On Friday, Hodoba died.
The wreck occurred around 11 a.m. on Dec. 7 as Hodoba was driving Westbound on 100. He ran through a red light and struck a Chevrolet Trail Blazer driven by Elsa Rego, 36, of Palm Coast, who had a 15-year-old passenger with her. That car overturned. Rego and the passenger suffered minor injuries.
