MIAMI (CBS4) – Florida Highway Patrol has named a person of interest possibly involved in a deadly crash on Interstate 75 Saturday morning.
Radomin Vicente Delgado Lozada is expected to meet with FHP investigators, but when that meeting will take place is unclear.
The red Ferrari that is believed to have caused the crash is registered to Delgado.
It was left smashed along the side of I-75 following the crash.
Online, Delgado is listed as a race car driver who raced at the Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Delgado can be found in YouTube videos. The videos say he is driving a Ferrari F430 Scuderia. That’s the same model car that was involved in the crash that killed Jorge Arrojas.
“In 20 seconds, I lost my partner for 40 years,” Miguel Larrieu told CBS4’s Maggie Newland.
Just after 12:30 a.m. Saturday, Arrojas and his partner were headed home from a dinner out with friends when troopers said the Ferrari slammed into their car.
“His head was here (chest) and I kept saying please breathe for me, please breathe for me, oh God please breathe for me,” Larrieu recalled from Saturday morning.
By the time troopers arrived, Arrojas was dead and the driver of the Ferrari was gone leaving the $300,000 car totaled on the side of I-75.
Troopers had not been able to find the owner of the car over the weekend, but now troopers have been contacted by a lawyer representing Delgado and another person.
What troopers need to find out is who was behind the wheel of the Ferrari when the deadly crash happened.
CBS4 News went by Delgado’s home in Pembroke Pines but no one answered the door.
A Porsche sat in the driveway and neighbors said they often see Delgado working on expensive cars.
As troopers continue their investigation, Miguel Larrieu, who is recovering from his own bumps and bruises from the crash is trying to go on without the man he loved for so many years.
“He joked all the time. He loved making jokes cracking jokes he was friendly to everyone what can I say everything that I lacked, he had.”
He just hopes troopers will find out who was behind the wheel and arrest the driver soon.
“I hope sincerely they catch because he took the life of an exceptional human being,” said Larrieu.
