Jury selection has begun for a man charged with killing a 13-year-old girl in a 2012 hit-and-run crash in southwest Miami-Dade.
 
Sandor Guillen, 39, is facing charges including vehicular homicide, DUI manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident in the April 13, 2012 crash that killed Kaely Camacho. He has pleaded not guilty.

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.

Since her death, Camacho's family has raised tens of thousands of dollars in her name for Mothers Against Drunk Driving. She was also honored with a street naming in Palmetto Bay.
