OCALA, FL – Ocala Police Officers arrested two men for street racing on State Road 200 which caused the death of Muniz Shrouf, 56, back in October 2021. Traffic Homicide Investigators arrested Mauricio Medina, 52, and Joshua Jones, 30, for vehicular homicide, racing on a highway, and reckless driving.

The investigation found that Jones was going 98 mph and Medina was going 96 mph just seconds before the crash. The posted speed limit is 45 mph. Both vehicles appeared to be traveling in a manner that put other motorists at risk and displayed disregard for the traffic conditions present at the time.
