Florida man found guilty in fatal drunken driving crash

May 7, 2019

NAPLES, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man has been convicted in a fatal drunken driving crash.

The Naples Daily News reports that 29-year-old Kiereek Seymour was found guilty of DUI manslaughter on Monday. His sentencing is set for June 26. A previous trial ended in a mistrial after a juror complained of feeling uncomfortable during deliberations.

Authorities say Seymour had mixed alcohol with prescription anxiety medication in May 2014 before a crash at an East Naples intersection that left 54-year-old Sandra Marie Maddux dead.

Defense attorneys argued that Seymour, who witnesses found in the passenger seat, hadn’t been driving the vehicle and that Maddux had run a red light.
