MIAMI (WSVN) - A police investigation is underway after a car crash at a Doral intersection led to one person being arrested.

According to police, Saavedra was released from probation in May 2023, and has an extensive record, which includes grand theft, leaving the scene of accident, aggregated battery of a LEO, fleeing/eluding and drug possession.
