The Florida Highway Patrol said it knows who owns the red Ferrari that caused a deadly accident Saturday night. Traffic homicide investigators said Radomin Delgado hired an attorney and is invoking his right to remain silent. FHP spokesman Joe Sanchez discussed the case, while Miguel Larrieu spoke about the loss of his partner Jorge Arrojas, who was killed in the crash.
The Florida Highway Patrol said it knows who owns the red Ferrari that caused a deadly accident Saturday night. Investigators have reached out to Radomin Delgado, but so far, he's been avoiding them.
"It's important that we see the owner of the vehicle because if he was driving the Ferrari, he's going to have some injuries and based on that injury, due to the airbag explosion or the impact itself, then we can go ahead and seek a warrant," FHP spokesman Joe Sanchez said.
Jorge Arrojas, 60, was killed in a crash when a red 2009 Ferrari Scuderia struck the blue 2012 Hyundai Sonata he was in from behind on Interstate 75 on Saturday, according to the FHP. The Hyundai struck another car before it rolled over onto the grass median just north of Northwest 138th Street.
The Ferrari was mangled in the crash, and its driver fled before first responders arrived, leaving his car behind, officials said.
According to a spokesperson at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Delgado races sports cars. In a YouTube video, it appears to be him warming up for a 2012 race, the Ferrari Challenge.
Outside Delgado's gated community in Pembroke Pines, no one answered the phone. Outside FHP headquarters, investigators will be combing through the inside of the sports car, looking for DNA evidence. Sanchez says investigators hope to answer the question: Was Delgado behind the wheel of the car that took the life of Arrojas?
Arrojas died in front of his partner of 40 years, Miguel Larrieu, who was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital with serious injuries.
"Someone in a 20-second interval completely took (him) from me," Larrieu said. "His absence will be missed forever."
Two days after the accident on I-75, Delgado is saying nothing. Traffic homicide investigators said he hired an attorney and is invoking his right to remain silent.
