Man Accused of Violating Probation for 2013 Quadruple Fatal Crash

A man was back in court Friday and is accused of violating his probation for a 2013 wrong-way crash that killed tourists from California.

Willie Dumel was speeding away from a police officer and drove the wrong way onto Interstate 95. He crashed head-on into another vehicle near Ives Dairy Road.

The crash killed Albertson Almase, Kristina Almase, Lily Azarcón and Denis Ortiz.

Dumel went to state prison for four years instead of 10 because of a technical mistake by prosecutors. He now could face up to 15 years if the judge finds he violated the terms of his probation.

The alleged new case is a domestic violence charge in Broward County. Dumel's attorney and prosecutors would not elaborate on the case.

Dumel will be back in court on December 12.

Former police officer Sergio Perez was fired from the Opa-locka Police Department in 2015 for his involvement in the fatal crash.
