Suany Aguilar Soberanis, 27, was identified as the person allegedly responsible for the fatal accident that occurred at 8:00 pm on Wednesday, August 20th at Colonia Benito Juarez in Progreso, which resulted in the death of Eddy Fernando Garcia Aldecua.
Although authorities did not immediately announce the driver’s identity due to the restrictions of the new Criminal Justice System, the name has now been made public.  It was further revealed that the driver is a resident of Merida who was in Progreso for the summer holidays. 
Aguilar Soberanis apparently lost control of her model C-280 Mercedes Benz and ran over Mr. García Aldecua and his wife Gretty Padilla Flores as they were walking on the roadway of Calle 33 (between 26 and 28), in Colonia Benito Juarez.  It appears the car was exceeding the speed limit.

After the accident the young woman fled the scene, but a witness managed to stop her as she headed to Merida and turn her in to the local police.  She is now facing charges of manslaughter.
Under the new criminal justice system which recently came into effect in the state of Yucatan, the young lady will face trial without incarceration.  If she is found guilty it is likely she will face jail time.

The death of Eddy Fernando García Aldecua has generated deep concern in Progreso, as he was well known in the community as a member of the Union of garbage collectors, as well as an athlete in a local football league and a good friend.
