BSO investigators said the 2007 Toyota had been stolen from Coconut Creek.
Witnesses told BSO Wilson was driving west on Northwest 15th Street when, BSO said, "the vehicle exited the roadway, striking a palm tree and the metal pole of the railway's crossing arms before rolling over and landing upside down on the CSX railroad tracks."
