Reckless driving causes many unnecessary accidents throughout the United States. Many of these accidents result in severe injury, and in the most traumatic of accidents, death.
Unfortunately such an accident took place in Miami recently. After tearing through the streets at a speed of over 120 miles per hour, the driver of a black Lamborghini is facing vehicular homicide charges. The vehicle slammed into a Suburban, sitting at a red light, at such a high rate of speed that it knocked the wheels off the SUV.
The devastating accident left Dr. Malcom Lloyd, 42, a passenger in the Lamborghini, dead at the scene. Dr. Malcom Lloyd, 42, was the founder and CEO of Old Nassau Imports, a luxury alcohol company.
Raul Alfonzo, a 46-year-old father, was also severely injured. Alfonzo was driving home from his night shift at Oceans Ten Restaurant and Bar, when he was involved in the horrific car crash. Alfonzo has undergone surgery and is still recovering from injuries sustained.
It is reported that the driver of the Lamborghini, Andres Esteban Toro, smelled strongly of alcohol, had slurred speech and blood shot eyes. There was also no evidence that the driver tried to stop for the red light and he demonstrated a “willful and wanton disregard for persons or property.”
Andres Esteban Toro, is being held on $100,000 bond. Once he is released from the hospital he will be on house arrest with electronic monitoring and will not be allowed to drink alcohol.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, speeding kills an average of 1,000 individuals in the United States every month, and is a factor in 31 percent of all fatal crashes. Fatal accidents that are directly related to speeding are avoidable, and many times, the family members of the deceased with file a wrongful death claim.
