Two Dead in Coral Gables After Rear-End Collision Involving North Miami DJ

A well-known North Miami DJ is under investigation following a fatal automobile crash that occurred in Coral Gables in the early morning hours on Sunday, June 9. Police said a vehicle driven by twenty-six-year-old Ervens Prudent rear-ended another vehicle that was coming to a stop at a traffic light at the intersection of Southwest Eighth Street and Douglas Road. Maria Martinez, forty-four, and Marlon Gutierrez, thirty-four, both of Sweetwater, were in the automobile that was rear-ended. Both were killed.

The accident occurred around 1:20 a.m. when Martinez and Gutierrez were travelling east and slowing down for a traffic light. Prudent was also travelling east and was located directly behind Martinez and Gutierrez. For reasons yet unknown, Prudent’s vehicle failed to come to a stop and collided with the rear of the couple’s car, killing both at the scene. Police are unsure how fast Prudent was travelling at the time of the crash. Prudent was also seriously injured in the accident and was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center. The investigation of the incident is ongoing. No charges have been filed at this time.
