The Florida Highway Patrol said Monday that Walter Roney of Dearborn, Michigan, died on Friday. His death came three days after the Fort Pierce crash that killed 18-year-old Santia Feketa and her 17-year-old best friend, Britney Poindexter. The teens were headed to a skating rink.

Michigan driving records showed that someone in September had reported Roney as possibly incompetent to drive, but 29 days before the crash he had passed a driving test in his home state.

Investigators say Roney was driving at night without lights going west in the eastbound lanes of a four-lane highway when he crashed into Feketa’s pickup truck.
