Florida jury acquits driver in retrial of fatal 2017 crash

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — A driver in a crash that killed a college soccer player four years ago was acquitted by a jury during a retrial that centered around a dispute over speed calculations. Jurors decided Tuesday that 29-year-old Kevin Brown wasn't guilty of vehicular homicide in the death of 23-year-old Eric Tarmey. Prosecutors argued that Brown was speeding 90 mph near West Palm Beach before hitting the the passenger side of Tarmey’s car. The speed limit along that stretch is 45 mph. The defense countered that investigators severely miscalculated Brown’s speed during a reconstruction of the accident.
