Devin’s mother, Eileen Gonzalez, told WSVN-Channel 7 that Devin has been unable to speak since the accident that caused him severe brain damage.

Never miss a local story.
The Palmetto Bay community held a blood drive July 12 for Devin, who almost lost his life when police say the golf cart in which he was riding ran a stop sign and was hit by a Dodge Caliber. All the golf cart’s five passengers, ages 2 to 16, were ejected, including Devin’s 10-year-old sister Isabella and 12-year-old sister Savannah. Palmetto Bay requires all golf carts, which must be registered with the village, to have seat belts to be street legal and requires all passengers to wear seat belts.
