Woman with DUI history ‘under a lot of stress’ after SoBe fatal crash
The house maid of Regitze Tauber Gamble said on Monday that she was “under a lot of stress.” The 75-year-old Pinecrest resident who was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol in 2015 was involved in a fatal crash on Friday in Miami Beach.
In seconds, the crash in South Beach changed the lives of several families. Six people, including a 3-year-old boy, suffered injuries. Gary Prince, 67, a beloved chiropractor from New York, died.
Tauber Gamble was trying to parallel park a Bentley along Washington Avenue in the South of Fifth neighborhood when she lost control and crashed into several tables.
Prince was having dinner at Call Me Gaby, at 22 Washington Ave., with friends when the Bentley ran him over. Three of his friends underwent surgery and were still recovering on Monday.
Cara Meng was one of the injured diners. She told Local 10 News her body is covered in bruises.
“Blood, glass everywhere, like people running around screaming,” she said of the crash. “It just kept going and going and I felt like what is going on, when will it stop, when will this pain stop.”
Meng said she was thrown on top of Prince.
“When the car finally stopped, I was just trying to understand what was happening, but I’m on this man,” she said. “I tried to get up and I tried to see if the man under me is OK, and I wanted to help him but he just kept saying, ‘I cant breathe, I can’t breathe.’”
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
