Driver arrested in crash that killed Moultrie family

| July 20, 2017

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (WCTV) – Investigators have arrested a man suspected of causing a crash that killed a Georgia family on their way to Walt Disney World to celebrate their daughter’s first birthday.

Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman Kim Montes said in a news release that 26-year-old James Geoffrey Dameron was taken into custody Tuesday following a traffic stop in Palm Beach County.

Montes says troopers received a tip on Monday that led to Dameron’s arrest.

Investigators have been searching for Dameron since the September 2015 crash that killed 23-year-old Thomas Garza, 20-year-old Lillian Luna and their daughter Brianna, all from Moultrie, Georgia.

Dameron was driving on a suspended license at the time of the crash. He faces multiple charges, including vehicular homicide.

Records do not indicate whether he has a lawyer.
