Man Arrested in Fatal Head-on Crash in Oakland Park: BSO

A man has been arrested in a head-on crash that killed a woman on Labor Day in Oakland Park last year, authorities said Wednesday.

Javier Landron, 47, was arrested Monday on charges including DUI manslaughter and vehicular homicide in the September 7, 2015 crash that killed 44-year-old Audrey Williams Ives, Broward Sheriff's Office officials said.

Landron was being held without bond Wednesday, jail records showed. It was unknown if he's hired an attorney.

A witness told BSO he was heading westbound on Oakland Park Boulevard when he noticed a silver Toyota Tundra driving westbound in the eastbound lanes. The witness honked his horn and tried to get the driver's attention, but the attempts failed.

In the 1900 block of Oakland Park Boulevard, the Tundra, driven by Landron, crashed head-on into a Toyota Camry, which was driven by Ives, authorities said. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities said toxicology results showed Landron had a blood alcohol level of .16 the morning of the incident, above the state's .08 legal limit.
