Cops: Drunk Driver Kills 13-Year-Old Florida Boy Going To Church

WAUCHULA, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a 13-year-old boy was killed in southwest Florida over the weekend after a drunk driver crashed into the church van he was riding in.

The Florida Highway Patrol reports that the van was returning to St. Michael Catholic Church in Wauchula Saturday night when 28-year-old Enemias Roblero Gonzalez veered into the oncoming lane. The van swerved, but troopers say Gonzalez’s SUV hit the van’s right side.

FHP says Adrian Rodriguez was killed and eight others were injured.

Gonzalez was arrested and charged with DUI manslaughter, two counts of DUI with serious injuries and seven counts DUI and property damage. He was being held at the Hardee County jail.

The group in the van had been returning from the annual Diocese of Venice Youth Rally at Bishop Verot High School in Fort Myers.
