A Miami Beach police report shows a pedestrian wasn't in a crosswalk when Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte Stallworth hit and killed him with his Bentley.
An accident report released Tuesday also says Stallworth told
officers he flashed his lights to try to warn 59-year-old Mario
Reyes, who was rushing to catch a bus after getting off work just
after 7 a.m.
Police say Stallworth was going about 50 mph in a 40 mph zone.
Police are investigating whether alcohol played a role in the
March 14 accident that killed Reyes. No charges have been filed
against Stallworth pending the outcome of blood tests.
A police diagram shows that Reyes was struck in the far left
lane of a six-lane road - not in a nearby crosswalk. Stallworth
stopped a few feet away.
