MIAMI, FL - Police have made an arrest in connection with a crash in Miami last month that left three people dead, NBC Miami reports.

The suspect in the Feb. 13 incident was identified as 26-year-old Erwin Rommel Recinos Zuniga of Miami-Dade.  Police said Zuniga was driving at high speed on West Flagler Street at about 3 a.m. and trying to pass other vehicles when he struck a median.
