Authorities have charged a 20-year-old Wimauma man with DUI manslaughter in a fatal crash Feb. 4.
Miguel Angel Utrera-Espinosa's blood alcohol level was 0.079 about three hours after the crash, according to authorities.
A toxicologist determined that, at the time of the crash, it would have exceeded 0.08, the level at which the state presumes impairment.
Utrera-Espinosa was driving a Chevrolet Trailblazer south on West Lake Drive in Wimauma, near Ruth Morris Road at about 6:30 p.m. that Saturday. His vehicle swerved into oncoming traffic and hit a Chevrolet Camaro.
The driver of the Camaro, 34-year-old Nadia Null, of Wimauma, suffered serious injuries. Her passenger, Ruben Rivera, 46, also of Wimauma, died.
According to arrest records, Utrera-Espinosa admitted to drinking alcohol before the crash. Deputies said he does not have a valid driver's license and is in the country illegally.
Utrera-Espinosa was initially charged with driving with a suspended license resulting in death or serious injury, as well as counts of driving without a valid license.
He was also charged Friday with DUI with serious injury and DUI with property damage.
