Driver was going twice the speed limit in fatal DUI collision, cops say

Dominic Michael Pryce was only half responsible for a deadly collision in Lauderhill more than two years ago, according to traffic homicide investigators, but he is now facing several charges including DUI manslaughter because of it, court records show.

Natalie Pinto was driving north on Northwest 31st Avenue approaching 19th Street about 4:28 a.m. on Sept. 11, 2016, when she made a right turn from the left lane into the path of a northbound 2007 Toyota Camry that Pryce was driving, investigators said.

Pryce, then-21, was traveling an estimated 75 mph in a 35 mph zone when he struck Pinto’s car, killing her and seriously injuring himself and two passengers in the Toyota, police said.

Blood was drawn at the hospital and his blood alcohol level was .088, which is above the legal limit of .08, investigators said.
