Miami-Dade Florida Car Crash Death of Karina Diaz – Obituary

Karina Diaz, a teacher at Creative Learning Center in Miami, Florida, has died in a fatal Miami-Dade car crash which also killed her father, Adalberto Hernandez Cereijo, and mother Elena Chacon Diaz. The accident happened when a Range Rover, while fleeing police, struck the Kia that Karina was driving.

At the intersection of Sunset Drive and Southwest 92nd Avenue, the Range Rover struck Karina’s Kia which then crashed into a pole. Karina was thrown out of the vehicle and was pronounced dead on the scene. Her parents, Adalberto Hernandez Cereijo and Elena Chacon Diaz were also killed on the spot.

Police believe the driver of the Range Rover, 24-year-old Rodney Rodriguez, was under the influence at the time of the wreck.
