Dade City Man Charged For Allegedly Fleeing Deadly Vehicular Encounter With Pedestrian

Demo_arrest_handcuffed-768x514.jpgA Dade City man faces felony charges after witnesses say he struck a man with his car last weekend and fled the scene.

According to Pasco County authorities, the 32-year-old man was driving southbound on 301 in the early morning hours of January 12 when the 2005 Nissan Altima he was piloting struck a pedestrian.

The pedestrian, a 27-year-old man from Dade City as well, was also walking in a southerly direction when the Altima allegedly veered out of the right lane and onto the shoulder where he was walking. Witnesses say the Altima struck the pedestrian, then proceeded to flee the scene.

One of the witnesses to the incident followed the Altima to its owner's home, then alerted police. The driver was subsequently apprehended by police without incident, and the Altima was also seized for evidentiary purposes.

The driver was transported to the Pasco County Jail and booked on charges including leaving the scene of a crash involving death, leaving the scene of crash involving property damage, and driving without a valid license. No further information was available at the time of this writing regarding custody status and bail.
