COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- A now 21-year-old man, accused in a deadly crash as a teenager, is no longer on probation.

When Riccardo Rivas was 16 in 2009, he crashed his truck into seven other vehicles at the intersection of Pine Ridge Road and Whippoorwill Lane. One of those drivers was killed.

Today, Rivas asked the judge to terminate his probation four years early, saying he's had trouble getting accepted to college and getting a job. The judge granted that request.
