ST. PETERSBURG, FL – An alleged drunk driver was arrested following a fatal accident in St. Petersburg last week, according to WTSP.
This is an update to a previous story.
Bryant Haney faces multiple charges, including DUI manslaughter, in connection with the multi-vehicle wreck on Interstate 275 Thursday night at about 6 p.m.
The Florida Highway Patrol said the incident happened near mile marker 28 on I-275, where four cars were stopped due to traffic. According to investigators, Haney did not stop and crashed into one of the vehicles, causing a chain-reaction five-vehicle pileup.
