Olympic wrestler crashes SUV into airport terminal
KFMB-TV 8 San Diego |
"A former Olympic wrestler who defected from Cuba in 1997 crashed his sport utility vehicle into a crowded terminal building at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, slamming into a ticket counter and smashing through a wall, officials said. Alex Vila, 33, of Williamston, Mich., was taken into custody after he ran from his SUV after the crash Sunday. He suffered minor scrapes and remained hospitalized in stable condition Monday morning. No one else was injured... Investigators don't know why Vila drove into the unmanned Southeast Airlines ticket counter... The crash raised questions about security at the airport, and about why a recommendation that barriers be placed in front of the airport's terminals was not followed. Airport officials did not return a call seeking comment Sunday."
