Pasco Driver Charged with DUI in Motorcycle Hit-and-Run

Michael Andrew Del-Freo of Hudson, Florida was charged with driving under the influence after a hit-and-run crash with a motorcycle earlier this week. The crash left two people critically injured according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

According to the highway patrol, Del-Freo was driving a 2001 Kia when he pulled out of a gas station on U.S. 19, just north of Hudson Avenue, about 11:40 p.m. His car collided with a Harley-Davidson motorcycle as he moved into the roadway. The driver of the motorcycle, Gary Thomas of Spring Hill was injured, as was his passenger, Janet Nash of Daytona Beach. Thomas and Nash were taken to the hospital. Highway patrol reports indicated that neither was wearing a helmet.

Law enforcement alleges that Del-Freo left the scene of the wreck. Troopers arrested him later at his home, on Shoal Drive in Hudson. After his arrest, Del-Freo had a breath-alcohol concentration between 0.148 and 0.153, according to authorities. He was charged in Pasco County with DUI and leaving the scene of a crash with injury.

If this was Del-Freo's first DUI arrest, he faces up to six months in jail in addition to probation, community service and a fine. If he has previous DUI convictions and/or Thomas or Nash were seriously injured, he faces enhanced sentences and possibly even a felony charge.

If you or someone you know is facing DUI charges in the Tampa Bay area, you are well-advised to contact an experienced DUI defense attorney to help you navigate the criminal and administrative implications of a DUI charge and/or conviction.
