Multiple Cars Involved in Fatal Crash Near Disney Springs

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on May 10, 2016

Around 8:45 a.m. on Saturday, three cars, a 2016 Toyota, a 2016 Nissan, and a 2011 Volkswagen, were stopped at the stoplight at the intersection of State Road 535 and Meadowcreek Drive. Before the light turned green, a four-door Toyota traveling north on State Road 535 reached the intersection. The driver of the Toyota, the 24-year-old Carlos Cintron Torres, did not stop or slow down his vehicle as he approached the intersection. The first car crash involved the 2016 Toyota, and then his car went on to collide with the back of the Nissan as well. Due to the high magnitude of the impact, the Nissan was thrust into the Volkswagen ahead of it.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the 2016 Toyota only had one occupant inside, and this unnamed individual suffered no injuries. Similarly, the occupants of the Volkswagen suffered no injuries. In the Nissan, however, were four individuals. The Florida Highway Patrol states that the Nissan’s driver, 47-year-old Roberto Delgado, and his left, rear passenger, the 15-year-old Richard Delgado, were critically injured and rushed to Dr. Phillips Hospital. Shortly after they arrived, Roberto Delgado was declared deceased. As of yet, the Florida Highway Patrol has released no update on the condition of Roberto Delgado. The last reports given indicate that his condition is critical.

While the Florida Highway Patrol and troopers investigated the accident, all northbound lanes of State Road 535 were closed.

In an official statement, the Florida Highway Patrol also informed the public that Carlos Cintron Torres had tested positive for drugs when his blood sample was taken. Accordingly, Torres faces DUI charges as well as charges of manslaughter. As of this moment, there have been no reports released relating to the condition of Torres, and it is not generally known whether or not he himself was injured in the crash or if the only injuries sustained were by the elder and younger Delgado.

It is also unknown whether or not the individuals in the other cars involved in the crash will be pressing charges against Torres.
