The driver of a sports car that crashed into the back of a sport utility vehicle on the MacArthur Causeway in Miami Beach early Thursday morning, killing the founder of the Double Cross Vodka brand, faces a charge of vehicular homicide.
An arrest affidavit has been issued for Andres Toro, who was driving the Lamborghini Aventador that police said was traveling more than 100 mph when it slammed into the back of a Chevrolet Suburban that was stopped at a red light in the westbound lanes of the bridge that connects Miami Beach to Miami.
Toro's brother-in-law, Dr. Malcolm Lloyd, who was a passenger in the Lamborghini, died in the crash. He was the founder, chairman and CEO of Old Nassau Imports.
Police said in the arrest affidavit that "there was no evidence of any attempt" by Toro to brake for the red light. The report also said Toro appeared to have bloodshot eyes and smelled of alcohol.
Toro was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he remained Friday.
An attorney for Raul Alfonzo, the driver of the SUV, said his client was on his way home from work at the time of the crash. Alfonzo suffered several broken bones and is wearing a neck brace.
His 16-year-old daughter, Helen Alfonzo, called Toro "reckless and irresponsible" during a news conference Friday.
Toro will be held on $100,000 bond upon his release from the hospital. He will also be placed on house arrest and must forfeit his passport.
