Jose Fernandez Deemed at Fault For Fatal Boat Crash

A recent report released by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said that former Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez was at fault for the fatal boat crash September 25, 2016.    The boat crash claimed the lives of Fernandez and his two friends, Eduardo Rivero and Emilio Macias.  In the report Fernandez was deemed responsible for all three deaths while at the same time committing two felonies.  The boat was traveling 65 mph before impact.  A toxicology report found Fernandez to have a blood alcohol level of 0.147 percent along with the presence of cocaine.  The report continued that Fernandez operated the boat in a “reckless manner at an extremely high rate of speed in the darkness of the night in an area with known navigational hazards.”

In total the report is 46 pages long and we’ve have it below.   Despite the new report David Samson has released a statement that says, “No matter what the report has concluded, nothing will ever diminish Jose’s everlasting positive connection with Miami and the Miami Marlins.  Nor can it lessen the love and passion he felt for his family, friends, teammates and all his fans in South Beach and around the world.

While that may be true, we still have to take into account the lives of those who were on the boat.  With this new report revealed, there could very well be some major lawsuits as a result.
