Florida authorities say the driver of a pickup truck was drunk when he crashed into a van leaving a Minnesota Twins spring training game in Fort Myers, killing one woman and injuring 14 others, all from Minnesota.
Highway Patrol spokesman Alvaro Feola tells news outlets Nisbany Surit Garcias was driving his truck recklessly Tuesday evening, "nearly causing crashes" before colliding with the van.
Garcias was injured in the crash and had a blood alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit to drive in Florida.
Garcias faces multiple charges that include DUI manslaughter and causing bodily injury.
A Florida Highway Patrol crash report says at least one of the 14 injured when the van rolled over several times is 4 years old.
Law enforcement officials say the crash Tuesday evening killed 21-year-old Laureen VanReese of Andover, Minnesota. Her 50-year-old mother, Kimberly VanReese, was among those injured.
