Lakeville Senior Faces Justice in Deadly DUI Crash That Shook the Community
In a recent incident in Lakeville, a 73-year-old man named David Delorenzo was charged with several charges after a fatal accident that killed one person and injured several others.
Delorenzo has pleaded not guilty to various charges, including vehicular homicide, driving under the influence of alcohol, causing serious bodily harm while driving under the influence of alcohol, speeding and violating designated lanes. The accident involving four vehicles occurred around 5:30 p.m. on Friday. Richard Reed, 75, a passenger in one of the vehicles involved, was pronounced dead at the scene. Delorenzo, who was driving a Hyundai Santa Fe, was hospitalized and later charged after his release. He was ordered to be held on $1,000 bail and ordered to wear a GPS monitoring bracelet, observe a curfew, not drink alcohol during regular testing and refrain from driving during the case. The accident investigation is still ongoing.
In another unrelated incident in Minneapolis, 25-year-old Julio Alvarado of Lakeville pleaded guilty to two counts of vehicular homicide. He was responsible for the death of a 42-year-old Luce pizza delivery driver named Aaron Zach, who was driving under the influence of alcohol. The accident occurred at an intersection in Minneapolis when Alvarado's car crashed into Zach's car with considerable force. It was found that Alvarado's blood alcohol concentration was more than three times the legal limit at the time of the accident. Despite the seriousness of the incident, Alvarado's defense is pushing for a more lenient sentence, including probation. It was expected that the final decision on Alvarado's sentence would be handed down on February 20.
