By Benjamin Flowers: Police say that Saudy Joseph Landero, the driver of the vehicle that knocked down and killed 11-year-old Keiana Yalene Cruz and injured her 5-year-old brother, Jahir Cruz, refused to give police the necessary samples to determine if he had alcohol in his system.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Joseph Myvett told the media that investigations are ongoing into the incident and it has been determined thus far that Landero was traveling at high speed when he lost control of the vehicle and hit the children.

“The vehicle will be inspected to see whether or not he genuinely lost control because of some mechanical failure. However, as the procedure would dictate samples were requested from him which he refused to provide,” Myvette said.

The incident happened on the afternoon of April 8, while the children were walking back home from an aunt’s house. Keiana reportedly pushed her baby brother out of the way when the speeding pickup approached them, however, he still suffered a broken leg and other injuries. Meanwhile, she was killed on impact and her body dragged some 200 feet. The vehicle came to a stop after hitting a lamp post on the side of the road.

Landero has since been charged with manslaughter by negligence, driving without due care and attention, and causing death by careless conduct, along with failing to give a sample.
