Early on Thursday, January 28th, 2016, a woman was killed in a crash that occurred on Pines Boulevard and 114th avenue in Pembroke Pines. The woman, 24-year-old Jessica Lee Bonilla of Miami Lakes, ran a red light at the intersection and entered the path of a Pembroke Pines officer’s eastbound Chevy Tahoe police SUV. The officer involved was identified as night shift Officer Olayemi Okegbola, who was not currently on his way to a call when the incident occurred.
A Miami firefighter received a suspension this week for being behind the wheel during a violent collision that injured a dozen people back in August 2015. Two investigations concluded Gustavo Alzate was responsible for causing the crash involving the fire truck he was driving and an ambulance. "We could have done a better job of preventing that accident," said Miami Assistant Fire Chief Pete Gomez.
