State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle’s award-winning Traffic Homicide Unit is committed to protecting motorists and victims of vehicular fatalities and severe automotive crashes. Miami SAO’s Traffic Homicide Unit staffs a highly competent team of approximately ten (10) sworn Assistant State Attorneys trained to investigate traffic deaths and critical injury incidents and two (2) traffic homicide counselors who assist the next-of-kin and surviving victims of these crashes. Mothers Against Drunk Driving has commended the unit for its dedication to helping the victims and families affected by impaired and reckless driving.

The unit’s prosecutors evaluate evidence in every fatal traffic crash in Miami-Dade County to determine whether felony charges are appropriate. They also review search warrants and assist with obtaining arrest warrants when necessary, and handle on-call questions from traffic homicide investigators around the clock every day.

Assistant State Attorneys assigned to this unit also prosecute some of the most complex and serious cases where offenders are charged with the following:
