‘The defendant’s decision to drive her vehicle while being so heavily intoxicated in an urban area that is traveled by many motorists demonstrates a reckless disregard for the safety of others and herself,’ the arrest report said, local10 reported. 

On Friday, October 15, Marquez’s $625,000 2021 Ferrari SF90 broke down along the Westbound lanes on the 163rd Street bridge.

He went out of the vehicle to check the engine and was standing by the rear, near Collins Avenue, before the crash.

Moments later, he was sent over the railing by Shadrina’s 2019 Maserati, falling at least 30feet off the bridge.
