On February 24th, a driver attempted to parallel park outside of a restaurant that had outdoor seating. The outdoor seating area was separated from the parking curb with a doublewide sidewalk with trees and lamp-posts. There is also a patio with additional outdoor seating that the driver drove through. That patio area is separated with shrubbery. While parking, the driver accelerated into the outdoor dining area, striking several occupied tables. The driver was driving a Bentley when they caused this car accident striking several people and killing one person. The ambulance transported all seven people to the hospital, and one person was pronounced dead once at the hospital.
The car accident took place in front of the Call Me Gaby Italian restaurant located in Miami Beach. Police and paramedics responded to the accident around 6:00 pm that Thursday night and reported that the driver stayed on-site and cooperated with them. Currently, the driver is not facing charges at this point from the victims, according to the police that responded to the car accident. The crash is still under investigation, so this could be why the driver still isn’t facing charges. The driver has had a DUI history associated with them, which is why the investigation of the car accident has taken time. Police have recently come out that the driver likely will not face any criminal charges.
