Man Crashes Car Into Nursing Home, 1 Dead, 4 Injured

Enrique Linares, having recently filed for divorce, spent a night out on the town. On his way to visit a friend in the wee hours of the morning, he took a curve on West Dixie Highway at 85 miles per hour. The posted speed limit is 35 miles per hour. His red Hondo crashed into a fence, over a curb and crashed into the first and second floors of a North Miami Beach nursing home.

Twenty-eight year old Linares died on impact. Linares’s car crashed into a small bathroom between two rooms in the nursing home. Four residents were injured by the flying debris and taken to Aventura Hospital to treat their injuries.

While no drugs or alcohol were found in the car, Linares did have a long history of speeding violations and other traffic tickets in Florida. Officers are waiting for an autopsy to determine if drugs or alcohol was involved in the crash.

A tragic end: Driver’s car sails into nursing home, August 08, 2012.
