Family members of an FBI agent and a Maryland deputy fire marshal said they are outraged and devastated after a driver who struck and killed their loved ones will only receive a $280 fine for the deadly crash. Roberto Garza Palacios was charged with negligent driving when he crashed into Carlos Wolff and Sander Cohen on Dec. 8. Investigators said Wolff crashed his car into a concrete median on the southbound side of Interstate 270. Cohen happened to be passing by and pulled over to the shoulder to help, putting on his hazards to warn other drivers. That is when police said Garza Palacios told investigators he did not have enough time to swerve out of the way and crashed into the two men standing outside their cars.
