Dover Man Facing Charges After Allegedly Fleeing From Scene Of Fatal Collision With Motorcycle

A Dover man suspected of causing a fatal crash and fleeing from the scene last week was arrested by Hillsborough County deputies after a brief search.

According to Florida Highway Patrol troopers, the 29-year-old was driving his 2004 Chevy Silverado on the eastbound lanes of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard on the evening of April 21 when he approached the intersection with Tanner Road shortly after 9 o'clock.

Troopers say the defendant turned left onto Tanner, bringing him into the path of a Yamaha YZF-R6 and its 29-year-old rider. The motorcyclist was unable to stop or otherwise evade the truck, striking it in the rear. First responders attending the scene said the man's injuries were severe, causing him to expire shortly after the collision.

Meanwhile, authorities say the truck's driver fled the scene on foot. A short search ensued, ultimately ending when the defendant was discovered at his residence, which was not far from the scene of the accident.

The defendant was arrested at his home and booked into the Hillsborough County Jail on counts of leaving the scene of a fatal accident and driving without a license. He continues to be held in lieu of a bond of $17,000.
