On April 5, 2013, three teenagers were driving in a green Saturn at 2:30 a.m. when the driver, Alejandra Maria Gomez, 17, lost control of the vehicle while speeding. Both Gomez and the front passenger Jenifer Garcia, 18, died upon impact, while Tatiana Davila, was rushed to the hospital in critical condition. The vehicle reportedly lost control while traveling at high speeds and crashed into the median and a pole, which caused the car to split in half.
Car Accident with a Stolen Vehicle
A 16-year-old male was driving recklessly in a stolen 2013 Lincoln MKZ on Northwest 7th Avenue before crashing into Miami-Dade College’s Liberty City campus, which killed one person and injured three others. The teen was driving in the vehicle with four other individuals before running a red light on Northwest 62nd Street around 1:00 a.m. The vehicle was reportedly stolen on August 18 near Northwest 13th Avenue and Northwest 147th Street. After the collision occurred, the driver was facing charges of reckless driving, leaving the scene of the accident after an injury, and driving without a driver’s license.
The car accident occurred after the male drove through a red light and swerved to miss several cars before hitting a curb and a pillar at MDC’s Carrie P. Meek Entrepreneurial Education Center. The car then caught on fire and trapped each passenger, resulting in the death of one individual.
Three teenagers were killed in a car collision on Halloween night just before 11 p.m. when a Ford Mustang was heading east on Immokalee Road with four individuals. The vehicle swerved and hit a concrete culvert before flipping. The friends were heading home after attending a haunted walk in Naples. Three of the male passengers died upon impact, while a fourth individual was taken to Lee Memorial Hospital in critical condition. Two of the victims were not wearing a seatbelt during the collision.
Joseph Daguerre Jr., Jacob Garibay, and Gerardo Ruiz all died during the incident and each were 17-years-old.
