Silver Spring Man Indicted in Double Fatal Collision

The county’s grand jury has indicted a Silver Spring man on charges related to a collision last July that caused the death of a veterinarian and his wife.

Daniel Alberto Aviles Gonzalez, 24, faces two counts of grossly negligent manslaughter, two counts of vehicular homicide while under the influence of alcohol, driving suspended, and driving on a learner’s permit without supervision.

Foxhall Veterinary Clinic owner Prabodh Vaid, 79, and his wife Nirmala Vaid, 77, were killed in the collision. Their home was located at the intersection of Georgia Ave. and May St., where the collision occurred, according to Montgomery County Police.

Aviles Gonzalez was driving his Jeep Grand Cherokee south on Georgia Ave. when he struck a Toyota Camry turning left from northbound Georgia Ave. onto May St., according to MCPD’s Collision Reconstruction Unit. It was determined that Aviles Gonzalez was driving under the influence of alcohol at a high rate of speed.

Aviles Gonzalez was indicted on Thursday, MCPD said.
