LABELLE – After an exhaustive criminal investigation, the Florida Highway Patrol Traffic Homicide Division has arrested Anne Marie Lang, 38 of Alva, on three counts of vehicular homicide, three counts of DUI manslaughter, and one count of DUI property damage.
In the January 20, 2021, crash, Lang was driving her 2011 BMW east on State Road 80, in the vicinity of County Road 78A, in excess of 100 mph.
At the same time, a 2009 Chevrolet attempted to back from 5411 State Road 80 and entered the path of the BMW.
The front of the BMW collided with the rear of the Chevrolet. The crash resulted in the untimely death of the Chevrolet driver (male, age 42 of LaBelle) and two teen passengers (both females, ages 13 and 15 of LaBelle). Lang, the sole occupant of the BMW, was transported to Lee Memorial Hospital and since released.
A toxicology examination determined Lang’s blood alcohol concentration level to be a .22, nearly triple the legal limit.
On March 4, 2021, Lang was booked into the Hendry County Jail on the above-mentioned criminal charges.
A GoFundMe page was set up for the family of the victims.
