Cambi, the driver of the Infiniti, was allegedly racing another vehicle with his 1-year-old child improperly restrained in the car at the time of the crash, according to information revealed at a bond hearing following his arrest.
According to an arrest warrant, Cambi was “racing, driving at speeds well in excess of the posted speed limit, and unlawfully passing other vehicles” when he negotiated a right curve with limited visibility and collided with the Toyota. Cambi and his child also suffered injuries in the crash.
Investigators later determined Wheeler had been driving under the influence of methamphetamine, according to court documents. Cambi’s defense attorney, Phil Holloway, argued Wheeler drove his car into the path of Cambi’s and contributed to the crash.
Cambi spent about eight months in the Cobb jail before being released on $55,000 bond. He has worn an ankle monitor since his release.
