Official: Speed, drinking involved Dubai crash that killed Weston woman, 3 others
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — A prosecutor in Dubai says high speed and drinking were involved in a Ferrari crash that killed a survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing, a Canadian boxer and two others.
Salah Bu Farousha, the head of Dubai Traffic Public Prosecution, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that an investigation continued into the crash early Sunday near Dubai’s Jumeirah Lake Towers neighborhood.
However, he said all those killed in the crash of the two-seat yellow Ferrari had been drinking.
Bu Farousha declined to name those killed. But officials in Dubai, who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to discuss the crash, identified those killed as Boston bombing survivor Victoria McGrath , Northeastern University student Priscilla Perez Torres, Canadian boxer Cody Nixon and James Portuondo.
