A Brooksville man is now facing charges in connection with an accident prosecutors say he caused last fall that ended in the death of another man.
Hernando County authorities say Joshua Aaron Johnson was driving his 1985 Honda moped at around half past ten o’clock on September 20 last year when Florida Highway Patrol troopers say he slowed up to let his companion catch up.
The man behind him, identified as Adam Cremin, was aboard his 2003 Kawasaki KS4 ATV when Johnson slowed. However, authorities say Cremin failed to notice Johnson’s slower pace, leading to a collision.
Per the authorities, Cremin was thrown from his vehicle in the course of the crash. The 27-year-old’s injuries proved to be fatal a short time later.
Johnson’s injuries were not reported, but he was arrested and booked into the Hernando County Jail on May 28. The 25-year-old is facing charges of driving with a suspended license and resulting in death, negligent manslaughter, failure to register a motor vehicle, and operating a vehicle in an unsafe condition. He remains in custody pending a bail of $31,000.
