A Miami-Dade Police officer is facing a vehicular homicide charge in a March crash that killed another motorist, officials said Wednesday. Officer John Young Song, a three-year veteran of the department, was charged in the March 6 crash that killed 45-year-old Emilio Jesus Vizcaino, the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office said in a news release. The crash happened around 1:30 a.m. in a rural area of southwest Miami-Dade at the intersection of Southwest 260th Street and Southwest 147th Avenue. Song was on duty and driving a marked police car at the time, officials said.
