MIAMI (WSVN) - The driver behind the wheel of the car seen on dashcam video crashing into an Allapattah bus stop and injuring two people has been arrested.
Thirty-one-year-old Euyns Perera was charged for driving with a suspended license during the crash, Friday.
City of Miami Police and Fire Rescue crews responded to the crash in the area of Northwest 27th Avenue and 24th Street on Thursday evening.
Friday afternoon, 7News cameras captured crews removing the bus bench’s mangled remains.
Dashcam footage showed a silver Cadillac swerving from the left lane into the far right lane before suddenly turning in the direction of the bus bench, striking two people who were waiting for the bus.
Officials said one of the victims was a 76-year-old man.
Paramedics transported the victims to the hospital. The 76-year-old man was transported as a trauma alert and was initially listed in serious condition, but as of Friday evening, both victims are listed in stable condition.
Surveillance video from a nearby business also captured the crash from a different angle.
Another vehicle, a gray Toyota Tacoma pickup, was also hit in the crash, but the driver, Rafael Perez, told 7News he was OK.
“The guy was behind me, and he hit me. All I saw was the impact from the crash,” he said through a translator.
Perera is no stranger to the law, as he has several prior arrests in both Miami-Dade and Broward County, including driving without a valid license back in 2015.
