Driver Arrested in 2015 Crash That Killed Vacationing Family in Florida

It took two years, but investigators in Florida finally caught up to a man suspected of causing a crash that killed a Georgia family on their way to Walt Disney World to celebrate their daughter's first birthday.

Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman Kim Montes said in a news release that 26-year-old James Geoffrey Dameron was taken into custody Tuesday following a traffic stop in Palm Beach County.

Montes says troopers a tip received on Monday led Dameron's arrest.

Investigators have been searching for Dameron since the September 2015 crash that killed 23-year-old Thomas Garza, 20-year-old Lillian Luna and their daughter Brianna, all from Moultrie, Georgia. Dameron was driving on a suspended license.

He faces multiple charges, including vehicular homicide. Records don't indicate whether he has a lawyer.
