CUDJOE KEY (CBS4) – A 12-year-old boy died when the SUV he was riding in crashed into a restaurant after troopers say the driver lost control.

The crash happened June 27, 2013 on Cudjoe Key around 4 p.m. at mile maker 22.6 oceanside according to CBS4 news partner, The Miami Herald and Keysnet.com.

Albert Brown, 68, of Miami Gardens, was the driver of the 2001 Nissan SUV.

Dwayne Hamilton, 12, of Randallstown, Maryland, was in the front passenger seat and died on impact according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The accident report notes Hamilton was wearing a seat belt.

The SUV was traveling north on U.S. 1 when troopers say Brown drove onto the road’s east shoulder, hit a “caution” sign, lost control and swerved back onto the road in effort at correcting his steering. At that point, troopers reported Brown drove back onto the shoulder and then into the parking lot of the Square Grouper restaurant and hit the building.

Three other people from Randallstown were in the SUV during the crash.
