PALM BAY, Florida – The Florida Highway Patrol is reporting that 29-year-old Latwinnett Dixon of Palm Bay, Florida and her 3-year-old daughter, Nazirah Wilson, died this morning from the injuries that they sustained in a fatal crash which occurred around 4:47 a.m. this morning on I-95 just north of mile marker 173 and south of Malabar Road in Palm Bay, Florida.

FHP says that a semi-truck and trailer driven by 53-year-old Carlos Abreu of Miami, Florida was towing the cab portion of another semi-truck driven by 43-year-old Gaston Arbolaez of Miami Gardens, Florida that had become disabled with a chain. Both semi trucks were traveling southbound on I-95 below the posted speed limit.

Dixon was also driving southbound on I-95 in a 2011 Toyota SUV when, for an unknown reason, the front of the Toyota struck the rear of the towed semi cab.

FHP Troopers are still investigating the actions of Abreu and Arbolaez and charges are pending.
At this time, no witnesses to the accident have come forward. Troopers are asking that anyone who witnessed the crash or the first semi towing the second semi prior to the crash to contact FHP at (407) 737-2213.

According to FHP spokesperson Sgt. Kim Montes, both of the deceased were wearing seat belts and/or child restraints before the crash occurred and that alcohol was not related to the crash.

Abreu and Arbolaez did not sustain any injuries as a result of the crash.

  • It's insane how that person looked up this girl drivers record that should be against the law

  • STFU those were my cousins.. u don't know what the fuck happened so keep your comments to yourself, and don't even TRY to respond to this...

  • To those who did not know her that is my cousin she was not in the wrong what so ever the news twist and turn stories so u cannot always judge by what the news says......I love my cousins and may they rest in piece we may be missing them here on earth but God called them home and they are in a much better place

  • My thoughts and prayers go out to her family. I used to work with her and she was a sweet caring person who dedicated her life taking care of others. It is sad that some people have nothing better to do then look up her driving record and are so quick to judge others that they didnt even know. A human beings life was lost and for those of you that are so quick to judge others, all I have to say is that I will pray for you and hope that nothing this tragic ever happens to you and your family. God bless.

  • The family is in my thoughts and prayers. Regardless of who was at fault and who wasnt the point is 2 people lost their lives a mother and a baby who hadn't even begun to live life yet. And 2 other children lost their mother and sister. we should be mourning lives cut short especially that of a 3 year old baby not pointing fingers at the deceased who isnt even here to defend herself. Grow up people. And to the family of the lost please rest easy knowing your family was welcomed into the warm loving embrace of our Lord ajd Saviour and they are at peace with Him. Rest in peace to these beautiful lives cut far to short
