Tragedy in Miami-Dade: Drunk Volkswagen Driver Kills Motorcyclist After Hours of Drinking

After drinking for eleven hours, a Volkswagen driver in Miami Shores drove the wrong way on a roadway, killing a motorcycle on Sunday morning and critically injuring his passenger, according to authorities.

North Bay Village resident Carlos Humberto Fabian Zepeda, 41, was taken into custody on suspicion of DUI with serious bodily injury, DUI with property damage, and DUI with injury to person. There may be more charges to come. Bobby Jenkins had 36 years old.

Lindsey Christianna Laquerre, a passenger aboard Jenkins, sustained a fractured femur, a damaged pelvis, and a concussion.

A Miami Shores police sergeant observed the crash debris at North 108th Street and North Miami Avenue at approximately 3:05 a.m., according to the arrest record. Upon arrival, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue pronounced Jenkins deceased and sent Laquerre to Ryder Trauma.

Uber driver said to Miami-Dade police that Fabian’s Volkswagen Jetta slipped from the northbound to the southbound side when he and Jenkins and Laquerre were traveling south on Miami Avenue on Jenkins’ KTM motorcycle. Fabian collided with Jenkins’ motorcycle and the Hyundai of the Uber driver.

Fabian, according to the Miami Shores police officer, “had bloodshot/watery eyes” and “was speaking incoherently,” alleging that he was on his way home even though his North Bay Village residence was in the opposite direction.

Furthermore, he had been traveling in that way for a few minutes. According to Miami-Dade police, around 2:57 a.m., a license plate scanner detected Fabian’s vehicle at 34th Street and North Miami Avenue.

Police discovered a cell phone at the crash site that did not belong to any of the people involved.

The owner told them they had gone on a date and that “Fabian had mistakenly kept her phone” and that they “had consumed alcoholic beverages at several locations from approximately 3 p.m. on (Saturday) until 2 a.m. on (Sunday).”
