Unlicensed Driver in Miami Crash Faces Immigration Detainment After Injuries

A man identified by police as Osman Flores, who was driving without a license, was reported to have been speeding, ran a red light, and caused a crash injuring three people in Miami.

According to records, he is under a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement hold.

The incident occurred when Flores, driving a blue 2020 Mercedes GLE350, collided with a blue Chevrolet Spark at the intersection of Seventh Street and Northwest 47 Avenue around 4:40 a.m. on Saturday, as per police reports.

The injured, including a child, were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center by Miami Fire Rescue personnel.

Flores, 46, was booked by Miami-Dade correctional officers at Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center around 4:25 p.m. on Saturday. He appeared in Miami-Dade bond court on Sunday, and his attorney entered a not guilty plea on Monday, according to records.

Flores is currently facing four charges of driving without a license causing serious bodily injury or death, which is a third-degree felony. His bond was set at $100,000, and a judge ordered him to surrender his passport.

Records indicate that Miami-Dade County Circuit Judge Laura Cruz is assigned to oversee the case.
