Man charged with a DUI – killing a motorcyclist

Hillsborough County Man arrested for DUI

A man was recently charged in a DUI accident that happened back in February. The man, Laramie Vantreeck, was driving his black 2016 Dodge ram in the parking lot of his apartment complex located at Mobbly Bay Apartments in Tampa. Coming the opposite direction was a motorcycle rider. Vantreeck turned in front of the motorcycle list causing the rider to be pinned under the vehicle. Vantreeck did not stop until a witness yelled to him that he was running over a person. The rider was transported to the hospital where he died from his injuries.

Hillsborough County Sheriff Deputies conducted a field sobriety test and arrested the man. His blood alcohol level turned out to be .149. 

Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister said “it is extremely disappointing to learn the circumstances that led to the motorcyclist’s death”
