A teen driver has been arrested in connection with a high-speed crash that killed a man in Miami Gardens last month, police said Thursday.
The crash happened around 2 a.m. on the morning of Sept. 25 in the 3800 block of Northwest 183rd Street.
Miami Gardens Police officials said 19-year-old Innocent Friggson was speeding on Northwest 183rd Street when the car he was driving collided with a vehicle being driven by 64-year-old Ludman Lawrence.
Lawrence had been trying to make a left turn and the impact caused his car to overturn and eject him from the vehicle. He later died from his injuries.
