Alexandra Marquez Car Accident, Death – According to authorities, the lady who was driving a Maserati when she allegedly struck a guy who was standing outside his Ferrari on the 163rd Street bridge, pushing him over the railing and into the Intracoastal Waterway, where he was ultimately killed, was intoxicated and three times over the legal limit for driving at the time of the accident. Irina Borisova Shadrina, 33, of Hallandale Beach is facing vehicular homicide and manslaughter charges in connection with the incident, as stated in an arrest report. These allegations stem from her alleged intoxicated driving, which led to the collision.
On the evening of Friday, October 15, witnesses spoke with Local 10 News about what they witnessed in the moments after the guy was struck and fell over the side of the bridge in Sunny Isles at around 10:52 p.m. According to the investigators, the driver of a 2021 Ferrari SF90 pulled over and exited his vehicle in order to inspect the vehicle’s engine. According to the police report, Lionel Michael Marquez was standing near the back of the vehicle when Shadrina drove close to the stopped automobile. Shadrina was arrested for her involvement in the incident.
According to the investigators, she made a sharp left turn and struck Marquez as he was walking back to his vehicle. Marquez was then launched into the air and hurled off the bridge and into the Intercoastal Waterway at that point. Shadrina was driving when she crashed into a barrier wall and hit the driver’s side door of a Ferrari. She also damaged the vehicle she was driving. According to the investigation, she continued driving until the front left tire of the Maserati came off. The report also indicated that she drove 450 feet east of the area of the initial incident before coming to a halt.
An eyewitness described the incident to Local 10 News on the evening of the collision, saying, “Someone came up from behind him and ran into him.” According to the witness, there were at least 15 to 20 others watching from a distance. Tape was placed around the base of the bridge on the ground by the police while they continued their search on foot and by boat into the early hours of the next morning. At around ten in the morning on October 16, approximately 12 hours after he was hit, the body of Marquez was discovered floating in the sea.
