“was fleeing Flagler and Volusia deputy sheriffs in a stolen Nissan Altima when he made a U-turn and started driving north in the southbound lanes on I-95”
Last week, Reginald Harris pulled a u-turn on a highway while fleeing the police. While driving the wrong way at nearly 100 miles an hour, he crashed into another vehicle, killing a young man and woman who were siblings.
Harris, who also died in the crash, had a long rap sheet and a revoked license.
David Harris reports at the Orlando Sentinel:
Orlando man identified as wrong-way driver in crash that killed Wisconsin siblings
The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office identified the wrong-way driver who authorities say last week caused a crash that killed two Wisconsin siblings and injured two others on Interstate 95.
The driver, Reginald Lamar Harris, 47, of Orlando, also died in the crash.
Harris was fleeing Flagler and Volusia deputy sheriffs in a stolen Nissan Altima when he made a U-turn and started driving north in the southbound lanes on I-95 near the I-4 interchange in Daytona Beach, deputies said.
He crashed head-on with an SUV, killing siblings Danycka Milis, 18, and Domynic Milis, 21, and injuring their 13-year-old brother and 17-year-old cousin, Volusia deputies said.
The Milis’ were in Florida vacationing and had just gone to a Christmas light event when the crash happened, deputies said.
What’s remarkable is that Reginald Harris was a free man. His rap sheet is extensive.
