The man charged with killing a 13-year-old girl in Southwest Miami-Dade after a fatal hit-and-run accident entered a not guilty plea Friday morning in court.
Sandor Guillen, 38, is facing charges including vehicular homicide, DUI manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident after the April 13 crash that killed Kaely Camacho.
Though Guillen did not appear in court Friday, his attorney, Bruce Lehr, entered his not guilty plea before Judge Marisa Tinkler-Mendez at the Richard E. Gerstein Building.
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.
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."
