    Sandor Guillen, who is charged in a hit and run crash that killed a 13-year-old girl in Southwest Miami-Dade, left the Turner Guilford Knight Jail shortly before 11 a.m. Tuesday with an officer escort. Guillen's attorney Bruce Lehr visited with him at the West Kendall home of his parents, where is under house arrest, on Wednesday. "He has absolutely nothing to say. I have forbidden him from opening his mouth," Lehr told reporters.

    Camacho was killed when Guillen’s Land Rover struck her father’s minivan, ripping it in half on Southwest 184th Street, police said. After Guillen’s car rammed into a tree and spun five times, he fled from the scene on foot but was quickly caught, officials said.

    Camacho was rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center where she later died.

    Bree Ann Camacho posted a video on her Facebook page asking for support to keep Sandor Guillen's bond at $1 million. Guillen is charged in the hit and run crash that killed Camacho's 13-year-old sister, Kaely.

    Father Kirk Camacho, 47, and sister Bree Ann, 16, were also hospitalized and later released.

    Lehr said he had no comment when asked whether his client had expressed any feelings about what happened during the deadly crash.

    He said Guillen remains at home healing from the injuries he sustained in the accident. Guillen was released from jail April 25 on $205,000 bond after it was lowered from $1 million.

    "We hope justice will be served, it's just a matter of time," said Kaely's father Kirk Camacho. "We'll be here each and every time until that happens."
