Fatal Hit-and-Run Suspect Pleads Not Guilty

Sandor Guillen, 38, on Friday entered a not guilty plea for charges including vehicular homicide, DUI manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident in the April 13 crash that killed Kaely Camacho. "We hope justice will be served, it's just a matter of time," said her father, Kirk Camacho. "We'll be here each and every time until that happens."

Kaely Camacho Laid to Rest

Kaely Camacho was laid to rest Wednesday afternoon in Kendall, five days after the 13-year-old was killed in a hit and run crash in southwest Miami-Dade. At least 250 people attended her funeral, remembering a teenager with a wonderful laugh. "I know Kaely deep down inside, if she was here, she wouldn?t want to see me crying, she wouldn?t want to see me upset, she?d want to see me smiling and laughing, because she always made me smile and laugh. That?s just who she was," said close friend Lucy Kealy.

The man charged with killing a 13-year-old girl in a Southwest Miami-Dade hit-and-run accident had a blood alcohol level at least three times over the legal limit at the time, according to a toxicology report authorities released Wednesday.

Sandor Guillen, 38, had a blood alcohol level of .266 in a test done at 6:17 a.m. on April 13, a little more than an hour after the Range Rover Sport he was driving struck a Chrysler minivan containing three members of the Camacho family, according to authorities. Florida’s legal limit is .08.

The crash killed Kaely Camacho, 13. Guillen has pleaded not guilty to charges including vehicular homicide, DUI manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident.

A second test done at 7:18 a.m. on April 13 showed Guillen with a blood alcohol level of .246, according to the toxicology report from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine that was provided by the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office Wednesday.
