    The family of a man killed in a car accident in March is asking for the community’s help in locating the woman responsible for the crash.

    On March 3, Velez was approaching a green light at the intersection of State Road 817 and Northwest 210 St. when Maria Santa Chaison turned left in front of him and caused a crash, Miami-Dade Police said. Velez was transported to Ryder Trauma Center where he later died.

    Miami-Dade Police said Chaison was driving under the influence with a blood alcohol level of 0.2.

    There is a warrant for her arrest and authorities believe she may have fled to Honduras.
