A toxicology report also stated drugs and alcohol were a factor in the fatal crash, with cocaine found in Fernandez’s system at the time of the accident.

An attorney representing the late pitcher recently claimed investigators prematurely concluded Fernandez was responsible, and then altered or ignored evidence to the contrary. Macias and Rivero’s estates are suiting Fernandez’s estate for $2 million apiece.

While the cause of the most recent crash remains under investigation, Miami fire officials are reminding everyone that "boating at night should only be done by expert navigators and to make sure you have the appropriate safety equipment any time you go out on the water. Remember to slow down & never drink alcohol if you are operating a boat."
