The MIAMI HERALD has uncovered video footage of the aftermath of Donte Stallworth’s auto accident in Miami that left a 59-year-old man dead.
Early Saturday morning, Stallworth was driving his Bentley on the MacArthur Causeway when he struck & killed Mario Reyes, who was reportedly trying to cross the street to catch a bus.
Police & rescue workers soon arrived on the scene - the workers trying to revive Reyes, while the police gave Stallworth a sobriety test. Video of the scene (which may be uncomfortable to some viewers) is after the jump.
In the meantime, family members say Reyes was on his way home from an all-night job with a Miami shipping company when he was struck by Stallworth. Yanez shares more about Mario’s background:
Reyes was born in Cuba and left as a teenager for a better life in the United States. He worked numerous construction jobs. He was an avid baseball fan, particularly fond of the Florida Marlins.
Reyes leaves behind his wife of almost 20 years, Catalina, and the couple’s 15-year-old daughter, Daniela. They live in a southwest Miami home owned by (brother-in-law Francisco) Fajardo, which they share with his family.
Reyes’ wife and daughter were too distraught to speak Sunday. ”Our family is in shock,” Fajardo said. “They don’t really want to talk.”
