POMPANO BEACH — A Pembroke Pines woman was arrested Monday on charges that include DUI manslaughter following a year-long investigation into a deadly crash on Interstate 95 in Pompano Beach.
Armide Lisa Armand, 21, was driving a 2008 Saturn Vue north on I-95 when she rear-ended an Isuzu Rodeo just after 6 a.m. Oct. 13, 2019, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The Isuzu veered out of control, struck a light pole, rolled over, hit a chain-link fence, and came to rest on the highway embankment about two miles south of the Atlantic Boulevard exit, the crash report stated.
Pompano Beach Fire Rescue pronounced driver Ariond Noezile, 43, dead at the scene.
The Saturn came to rest against a chain-link fence. Several motorists pulled over to help. One driver had recorded the crash on her dashboard video camera and called 911, the FHP said.
A Road Ranger was responding to an unrelated disabled vehicle when he passed the crash scene and pulled over. Tow truck driver David Rivera told troopers Armand had asked him for help getting her mother’s Isuzu out of the ditch. He told her to stay put until police arrived. He said she tried to drive away but got stuck in the mud, investigators said.
