On April 24, 2024, Naples Police Department made an arrest in connection with a tragic traffic collision that occurred on December 15, 2023, at the intersection of Neapolitan Way and US-41 North (9th Street North).

The collision involved a black Infiniti and a white Audi, resulting in serious injuries to the occupants of the Audi. Sadly, on December 22, 2023, a passenger within the Audi, identified as Mary McNamara (66 years of age) of Naples, FL, succumbed to her injuries while receiving treatment at Gulf Coast Medical Center.

Through a thorough investigation conducted by the Naples Police Department, it was determined that Alexis Martinez Alonso was traveling southbound on US-41 North at a speed of 66 mph. Martinez Alonso then accelerated to 81 mph in an attempt to avoid stopping at a red light. Martinez Alonso passed multiple vehicles slowing for the traffic light in the process.

Following the completion of the investigation and the examination of all available evidence, an arrest warrant was submitted for Alexis Martinez Alonso for the offense of Vehicular Homicide, a violation of Florida Statute 782.071(1)(a), to the State Attorney’s office of the Twentieth Judicial Circuit.
