Stallworth had a blood-alcohol level of .126 after the crash, well above Florida's .08 limit.


But he wasn't impaired. He wasn't driving smashed. 99.9999% chance he couldn't feel the alcohol in system whatsoever.

Stallworth stopped after the crash and immediately told officers he had hit Reyes. Police estimated Stallworth was driving about 50 mph in a 40 mph zone.


He was in the fast lane of 3 lane road.

Pedestrians ALWAYS have the right away in streets for obvious reasons, you can't just hit people. Dante should have hit the brakes instead of "flashing his lights" to warn Reyes that he wasn't going to brake.


He did hit his brakes. He assumed the guy wouldn't sprint out into the 3rd lane of a major road with on coming traffic. There was no crosswalk or whatever. He wasn't going 50 when he hit the guy, he slammed on his breaks when the guy bolted into the road.

Do you have a link. All the reports i read said it was a 40 mph zone and he left after calling. Also that he had a settlement out of court. Witch usually. Means there is a gag order on the family
Stallworth insisted on settling the case rather than fighting it, even though his lawyer said he most likely would have gotten off without any charges. He wanted to help the family while not causing them the pain that would go along with a long trial.


Also worth pointing out that Stallworth was out drinking, went home, went to sleep, woke up early and was going to go get some food in the morning when all this happened. He was still legally drunk at 7 AM, but it's not like he was driving right after partying.


Exactly. It was the next morning, after Stallworth went to sleep and he hit a guy crossing a major road at 7am not at a crosswalk (I believe the guy was heavily impaired as well).

The plea deal was Stallworth taking the deal, despite the fact that he likely could have gotten off scott free, in order to avoid putting the family through a long trial where they sit through hearing about and seeing pictures of their loved one deceased.


You believe wrong, Mario Reyes had just finished his shift as a crane operator. Lets not besmirch his name in an attempt to defend Stallworth, that is just in poor taste.

Stallworth had a blood-alcohol level of .126 after the crash, well above Florida's .08 limit. Stallworth stopped after the crash and immediately told officers he had hit Reyes. Police estimated Stallworth was driving about 50 mph in a 40 mph zone.

And no, Pedestrians don't always have the right of way.
