Ahmed was 22 in 2020 when he was charged with driving his 2019 Dodge Charger at 104 mph down Lombardi Avenue and crashing into a car occupied by three people heading towards Kwik Trip. The force of the crash sent the smashed car rolling four to five times, killing or fatally injuring all three people, according to details filed in the criminal complaint in 2020.

Ahmed’s speed was calculated by a data logging device in Ahmed’s car.

Driver Jesse Saldana, 28, and passengers Sonya Guillen, 27, and his mother, Sonya Gonzalez, 57, all died at the scene or at the local hospital where they were rushed after the accident, according to police records.

The prosecution and defense had planned to call a specialist in crash reconstruction to testify as an expert witness in the case, according to court records.

Ahmed faces three counts of first-degree reckless homicide in connection with the accident, which the criminal complaint says follows Ahmed’s police arrest six times during the year. elapsed for a series of reckless driving complaints. It was not immediately clear which of these incidents, if any, had led to charges.
