A Fort Lauderdale woman was arrested last month on drunken driving charges. Hathaikarn Russo, 34, was driving down Florida’s Interstate 395 when she was involved in an accident that occurred around 1am on a Thursday evening.
As a result, the westbound lanes of Interstate 395 were closed from Alton Road to Fort Lauderdale until about 8:30 the following morning. The DUI accident left one woman dead, and another victim was taken to Mount Sinai Medical Center.
Russo is charged with DUI causing serious bodily harm and driving under the influence-manslaughter.
