Drunk Driver Accused Of Killing 5 Now A Fugitive

MIAMI (CBS4) — A Miami man accused of driving drunk and killing five people is now a fugitive of the law.

CBS4 News partner The Miami Herald reports prosecutors have issued an arrest warrant for Carlos Lacayo. His whereabouts are unknown. Lacayo, 24, faces five counts of DUI manslaughter and vehicular homicide. He faces 75 years in prison if convicted.

Authorities say Lacayo plowed his mother’s car into a crowd of people on the left shoulder of I-95 at NW 103rd Street before 5:00 a.m. on March 5th.

The motorists had just been involved in a series of minor accidents involving 7 cars. The crowd was on the shoulder of the road waiting for police when Lacayo veered from the express lane, and smashed into the concrete barrier and the motorists, police said.

Five people were killed.

According to the warrant, Lacayo’s blood alcohol content level was .127 — well above the legal limit of 0.08 — four hours after the crash, after he had been admitted to the hospital.

Anyone with information on this case can call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.

    How about putting a “dead or alive” bounty on this lowlife’s head?

  • mada

    did you really think he would stick around……he is long gone, and you’ll never see him……

  • B

    Why was he let out of jail. He should have already been executed.

  • cyn507

    watch, he’s going to wuss out and kill himself. coward.

  • Counterattack

    This waste of human flesh will get drunk and kill again or he’s fled out of the Country and 5 families are suffering, if he’s found just execute him on the spot he won’t be missed.

  • carol

    he was most likely here illegally anyway…most likely went back to his home country…good riddance to him.

  • Peter Chin-Tai

    He needs to surrender himself, running is futile, the families have suffered, his families are hiding him, it is time he comes face to face with himself, the Cops let him get away unde there nose, they should be blamed, they are the accomplice to this crisis, they created the negligence in this carnage, they should be arrested, fired and tried as accomplices. Find that dumb ass cop who was watching him at the hospital, then arrest his ass for incompetence and aiding and abetting. Now the por family needs to sue the cops, they made this criminal be on the run, they have pictures of him and did not release it to show the public to have a look out for him, s people can alert and report his where about before he kills more innocent families, this time it may be the cops families, so they see what it is like to be on the suffering side
