ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – Authorities say a man has been cited for careless driving in a central Florida crash that killed two adults and two children visiting from Massachusetts.

The Florida Highway Patrol says 26-year-old Lucas Dos Reis Laurindo was issued a ticket last week.

Federal officials previously took him into custody for a visa violation. The crash happened Feb. 18 in Kissimmee, which is near Orlando. Troopers said the family had been traveling in a van when it was struck from behind and overturned.

Dos Reis Laurindo remains at the jail in Glades County, near Lake Okeechobee.
