Holiday Man Faces DUI Charges After Alleged Police Pursuit on U.S. 19

car-accident-2165210_640.jpgPinellas County authorities say an allegedly intoxicated Holiday man caused an injury accident as he led deputies on a chase along U.S. 19 last week.

PCSD deputies allege Kingzig Montanez of driving at an excessive speed southbound on U.S. 19 early on the morning of January 21 when they spotted him near Innisbrook Drive. Upon witnessing him allegedly speed past him in his mother's Hyundai Elantra, deputies say they tried to pull the 18-year-old man over, but to no avail.

Deputies say they lost sight of the vehicle shortly after, and it proceeded to rear-end a Fiat 500 driven by Heath Ready of Clearwater. Ready and two other occupants, namely Anabelle Gardner and Richard Serra III, were all injured in the crash. However, none of the injuries proved to be life threatening.

His own car now disabled and having sustained mild injuries himself, Montanez allegedly fled deputies on foot for a short distance before being successfully apprehended.

Montanez and the trio of twentysomethings were all treated at Mease Countryside Hospital. Once Montanez is medically cleared he will be booked into the Pinellas County Jail on charges including driving under the influence, resisting arrest without violence, leaving the scene of a crash, and driving without a license.
