Why Was Dangerous Driver Still on Roads?

But as the Orlando Sentinel reports, DMV records show that didn’t stop him from driving or racking up other violations.

Omar Kudra is still recovering from traumatic brain injuries he suffered during the accident. So how did Mead slip through the cracks? 

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
