Miami Beach police release Stallworth accident report

Nearly two weeks after Cleveland Browns WR Donte’ Stallworth hit and killed a pedestrian with his car in Miami Beach, police released their report on the incident Tuesday.

Here is how the officer who wrote the report described the March 14 accident that killed 59-year-old Mario Reyes:

    “The pedestrian … was crossing the eastbound lanes of the McArthur Cswy (Causeway) from south to north. The vehicle … was traveling eastbound on the McArthur Cswy in the left lane. The driver states that he flashed his high beams at the pedestrian in an attempt to warn him. The vehicle … struck the pedestrian and stopped further down the road. Rescue One responded and transported the pedestrian to Ryder Trauma (Center at the University of Miami) where he was pronounced dead a short time later. A blood draw was performed on the driver of the vehicle.”

Results of that blood test haven’t been released.

The police report also states that Stallworth’s 2005 Bentley was traveling an estimated 50 mph in a 40-mph zone and cites careless driving and excessive speed as contributing causes of the accident.

The law office that represents Stallworth had no comment on the police report.
