Drunk driver in Florida facing charges

Two drivers in Tamarac, Florida were involved in a traffic crash that resulted in one fatality, an August 7 article of Local 10 News reported.

According to reports, 40-year-old Conan Acevedo struck a vehicle’s driver side around 2:30 a.m. at the intersection of West McNab Road and Northwest 70th Avenue. The accident occurred after Acevedo blew through a red light while travelling westbound on West McNab. The driver of the vehicle struck by Acevedo was identified as Nicolas Garcia, 18. Garcia was rushed to the hospital where he was described as “fighting for his life.” Garcia succumbed to his injuries after being admitted to Broward Health Medical Center. Acevedo, who had a blood alcohol level of 0.18 percent, was booked at Broward County Jail and he was not allowed to post bail.

The wrongful death attorneys at the The Bruner Law Firm in Fort Walton Beach send their sincere condolences to the family and friends who are saddened by this tragic loss to the community.
