Authorities say a police officer in Florida has been fired for drinking on the job shortly before his all-terrain vehicle struck and injured two people.
According to a press release, another officer who was not involved in the crash but failed a breath-alcohol test also was fired Friday.
Police say Derick Kuilan and Rolando Gutierrez had been drinking at a hotel Sunday instead of patrolling their beats. Authorities say Kuilan got on his ATV with a woman around 5 a.m. The two pedestrians were hit soon after.
The Miami-Dade State Attorney's office is investigating the crash.
Attorneys for Kuilan and Gutierrez declined to comment Friday. A spokesman for the Miami Beach Fraternal Order of Police, Sgt. Alejandro Bello, said it would be inappropriate to comment because the investigation is ongoing.
