WEST PALM BEACH, FL - Authorities say a man is now facing criminal charges in connection with a deadly crash in West Palm Beach last summer, according to WPEC.

Police said 30-year-old Travon Mitchell was driving a Nissan Frontier when he ran a red light in the area of Belvedere Road and Australian Avenue on July 13, 2020. He crashed into the passenger side of a Honda Civi, killing two people inside. The victims were the driver, 18-year-old Alejandro Garcia Suarez, and a passenger, 46-year-old Mena Canto.
