Approximately one year after Deputy Commissioner of Police, Miguel Segura was involved in a traffic collision that killed a woman; her family has filed a suit to get compensated for damages suffered in the incident. Viewers may recall that on Saturday August 16th 2014 around 5:30am, Segura was driving a police issued Nissan Pathfinder to his home in Benque Viejo when he crashed head on into a taxi which was heading to San Ignacio. The collision happened just outside Succotz Village and the female market vendor who was in the passenger seat, Yolanda Valencia, died on impact, while the driver suffered multiple injuries. Segura is being sued by Guadalupe Valencia who is seeking damages for negligence in her daughter’s death. The mother is also seeking to recover monies for Valencia’s funeral expenses, as well as loss of income since her daughter’s earnings were used to defray various expenses. And while Segura remains on interdiction, probably the most damning evidence against him is a cell phone video, which went viral on Social media. Viewers may recall that the video was captured shortly after the accident and it shows Segura in a white shirt and uniform pants, first putting his pistol into his left pocket. Segura then nonchalantly pulls out a cigarette, takes a puff, and then goes to pull up his pants - which was unbuttoned. What makes the video most jarring is that all this is happening ten feet from where the accident victim 54-year-old Yolanda Consuelo Valencia lay dead in the taxi. Guadulpe Valencia has attained the services of Attorney Kareem Musa.
