Race Car Driver Wanted for Questioning After Fatal Accident
A Ferrari that was involved in a deadly accident on Interstate 75 Saturday has been linked to a Florida race car driver.
The Florida Highway Patrol is searching for the owner, Radomin Vicente Delgado-Lozada. It is uncertain that Delgado-Lozada was driving the car at the time of the deadly crash. Delgado-Lozada is currently at large and is wanted for questioning by law enforcement at the time this article was written.
The red Ferrari was travelling north on I-75 in the center lane just northwest of 138th Street. The accident involved three vehicles and happened at around 12:40 a.m. Saturday morning.
Miguel Larrieu and Jorge Arrojas were riding in a blue Hyundai that was traveling north in front of the Ferrari when the Ferrari struck their car from behind. According to Florida Highway Patrol accounts, the Ferrari then crossed several lanes and eventually came to a stop in the grass median.
As a result of the impact from the Ferrari, Arrojas’ and Larrieu’s Hyundai hit the rear of another vehicle, a white Saturn, and their car rolled before stopping in the grass median.
Jorge Arrojas, who had been driving the Hyundai, was pronounced dead on the scene of the accident. Arrojas’ partner, Miguel Larrieu was transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital, but was later released.
The Saturn also ended up in the median, but the driver survived.
“We know who the owner is,” Florida Highway Patrol spokesperson Joe Sanchez said at the scene on Saturday. “At this time, what we need to do is put somebody behind the wheel, the person who caused this fatal accident, the person who was driving recklessly on I-75 that caused this accident.”
Delgado Lozada has hired the services of an attorney.
It is clear that the person who was driving the Ferrari at the time of the crash is guilty of a crime. The legal ramifications for leaving the scene of an accident in the State of Florida are very serious, especially with fatalities involved. According to Florida Statute 316.027 , if you are involved in a crash that involves death or personal injuries, you must immediately stop your vehicle at the scene of the crash, or as close as possible that safety will allow. You must also remain at the scene of the accident until you have been released by law enforcement officers. Never be tempted to leave the scene of an accident. There are very high costs in terms of jail time, fines, loss of insurance, or other punitive damages.
