July 4th Weekend Car Crashes Shock the City of Miami: DUI Manslaughter Charges to Follow

Last weekend, 7 people died in two fatal car accidents in the city of Miami, including a 13 year old girl, a 14 year old boy, a 50 year old woman, and a 22 year old man. In one accident, the driver of a minivan lost control of his vehicle while suffering a heart attack at the wheel . His van spun out of control, as a Miami Marlins game was ending, striking down an entire family who was leaving the game and walking back to their home in Little Havana. All individuals involved were pronounced dead on arrival at Jackson Memorial Hospital, with the exception of a 10 year old girl who was in critical condition.

On the same day and nearly at the same time, two victims were killed by a drunk driver after eating at a popular restaurant called Jumbo’s in Liberty City. Wilton Harris, 60, and Al Jo Hamlin, 61, were both church leaders and highly respected individuals in their communities. The senseless of this tragedy has left a community searching for answers about why someone would risk his life and those of others, by getting behind the wheel of a car while intoxicated. A third victim involved in a deadly accident last weekend was a 22 year old unidentified man. He was struck down by a wreck less driver named Kevin Singh. Singh’s car spun out of control, hitting a curb and crashing into a utility pole in Pembroke Gardens. Singh did not suffer any critical injuries, but caused an innocent victim to die due to his gross negligence.
