DUI Charged After Wrong-Way Crash Injures 4 In Tampa

Police have arrested a Tampa driver who they say crashed head-on into another vehicle and injured four people on Tampa Bay Boulevard on Sunday. The driver, James Darron Snead, was charged with four counts of driving under the influence with serious bodily injury, the Tampa Tribune reports.

Apparently, Snead was behind the wheel of a 2000 Ford, heading east in the westbound lanes of Tampa Bay Boulevard at about 11 p.m. Sunday when his car struck another vehicle near Lois Avenue. Police said they could smell alcohol on Snead’s breath and noticed Snead’s glassy, bloodshot eyes and slurred speech—telltale signs of a person who is driving under the influence. Snead was arrested and was subjected to breathtests which registered near .20 BAC, which is more than double the legal limit of 08.

Each count of Snead’s DUI with serious bodily injury charge could subject him to five years state prison.
