Central Florida Man Arrested, Charged After Fatal Crash—DUI Suspected


According to a report from Fox 35 Orlando, a man in Central Florida has been arrested on DUI charges after a fatal collision. Valerio Sebastian Domingo, a 24-year-old man from Orlando, has been booked into the Orange County jail. He is now facing several serious criminal charges. Within this article, our Orlando DUI defense attorney explains what we know about the case as well as the specific charges that have reportedly been filed by Florida prosecutors.

Orlando Man Arrested After One Killed in Suspected DUI Crash 

As law enforcement representatives have confirmed to Fox 35 Orlando, a 24-year-old Orlando man named Valerio Sebastian Domingo, was arrested for DUI on the evening of August 20th. Mr. Domingo allegedly caused a crash that killed a 41-year-old woman. A preliminary investigation revealed that the crash occurred after the vehicle being driven by Mr. Domingo reportedly crossed the center line. He was arrested by the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) and booked into the Orange County Jail. As with any other person facing criminal charges in Florida, the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in court. He has a right to defend himself against all criminal charges.

An Overview of the Charges Filed Against the Defendant in this Case 

The defendant in this case is facing four separate felony criminal charges in this case. As there was a fatality and another injury, prosecutors in Central Florida are currently opting to pursue all of the charges. Here is an overview of the specific charges filed:

  • Driving Without a License Causing Death/Serious Injury (Two Counts): Prosecutors allege that Mr. Domingo did not have a valid driver’s license. It is a crime to drive without a license in Florida. When you drive without a license and cause a death or serious bodily injury, you can be charged with a serious felony offense. The defendant is facing two counts.
  • DUI Causing Serious Bodily Injuries: Driving under the influence (DUI) is a serious criminal offense in Florida. It is a felony when an intoxicated driver is involved in a collision that results in serious bodily injuries to any other party, including a person who is a passenger in their vehicle. Mr. Domingo is facing a felony DUI causing injury case.
  • DUI Causing Death: The most serious felony criminal charge filed in this case is DUI causing death. You may sometimes hear this charge referred to as DUI manslaughter. In Florida, DUI causing death is a second degree felony criminal offense. If convicted of this crime, a defendant can face a maximum penalty of up to 15 years in state prison.
