Police ID third person in last week's crash on S Dale Mabry

TAMPA — Police on Monday identified the third person involved in a fatal crash on Dale Mabry last week. The crash killed the person believed to have been driving and injured two passengers.

It happened at 2:15 a.m. Thursday, when police said a Nissan Altima heading north on S Dale Mabry Highway at about 100 mph flipped, rolled and crashed into a concrete light pole at Watrous Avenue.

Later Thursday, police identified the man who died at the scene as Dennis Hiram Perez-Figueroa, 27, and a critically injured passenger as Maria del Carmen Martinez, 42.

Police on Monday said the other person critically injured was 26-year-old Julio Angel Herrera.

Because of the severity of the crash, it wasn't clear who was driving, but police suspect it was Perez-Figueroa, said spokeswoman Andrea Davis. The Altima is registered to Perez-Figueroa's father.
