KEY BISCAYNE (CBSMiami) — New documents are giving a glimpse at the moments following a deadly New Year’s Day crash on Key Biscayne.
CALLER: “Bad accident…”
DISPATCHER: “Do you need fire rescue?”
DISPATCHER: “Type of vehicles involved?”
WITNESS: “Porsche, Porsche, Porsche Turbo.”
CBS4 has obtained the discovery evidence in the criminal case against the driver of the Porsche, 17-year-old Isaias Medina.
There are photographs, witness statements and 911 calls.
“Oh, there is a girl in the back. I got to get her out!” a person is heard telling the dispatcher.
Daniela Benavides San Miguel, 18, was riding in the back seat. She did not survive the crash.
It took the Jaws of Life to remove her from the sports car.
Evidence photographs in the discovery package a testimony to the violence of the crash.
There was a photograph of front-seat passenger Matthew Saldana in the hospital. His head injury affected his memory – he remembers nothing.
But Medina does remember.
From his hospital bed, he told an interviewing detective, “I just want to know if the girl in the back is alright.”
“You what?” the detective replied.
“Is the girl in the back alright?” Medina asked again.
The detective doesn’t answer the 17 year old.
Medina was later charged with vehicular homicide in Benavides San Miguel’s death.
“We’re talking about speed in such excess. There were some narcotics found in the vehicle. And I believe the young man had some of that in his system,” said Key Biscayne Police Chief Charles Press. “I think in this case, the fact is that this young man did not have a driver’s license, and was given this 180 mile-an-hour car on the craziest night of the year.”
