Miami College Student Gets 3 Years In Prison For Fatal DUI

ivanna villaneuvaUniversity of Miami student Ivanna Villanueva was sentenced to 3 years in prison followed by 15 years of probation after a fatal DUI crash. Eyder Ayala, a mother of 5 and grandmother of 7 was killed in the fatal DUI and pronounced dead at the scene. The incident occurred at the intersection of LeJeune Rd and Majorca Ave where Villanueva crashed into Ayala’s car at a high rate of speed. According to a toxicology test, Villanueva had a blood alcohol content (BAC) level that was almost triple the legal limit of .08%.

Villanueva could have faced up to 20 years in prison for several charges filed against her, but changed her plea to guilty in exchange for a reduced sentence. On the night of the accident, Ayala’s family said they became worried when she didn’t come home from her job at a McDonalds, where she worked as a manager for more than 20 years. Eyder Ayala has since been buried in Nicaragua and her family has sued both Villanueva and her father. Ayala’s family filed the multi-million dollar lawsuit against Villanueva’s father as well because they believe he is liable for her conduct, saying she was not only speeding, but was reckless and negligent.
