Bicyclist Killed in Hit and Run Crash, Suspect Charged with DUI Manslaughter

HUDSON (PASCO) – An early morning hit and run crash claimed the life of a Hudson man, after a suspected drunk driver struck a bicycle and fled the scene.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, 26-year-old Garrett Juhler-Robbins was driving a Pickup truck eastbound on SR-52, when he failed to stop for a traffic light at Chicago Ave. As a result, Robbins struck a bicyclist who was traveling southbound in the marked crosswalk.

The victim, 27-year-old Joseph Alan Barnes suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene.

Officials say Robbins fled but was later stopped by Pasco County Sheriff’s Deputies, about two-miles from the scene.

Robbins was taken into custody and charged with DUI Manslaughter, leaving the scene of a crash, and vehicular homicide.

  • Guys take it easy on the Garrett. We all fcuk up one way or another. None of you will be saying all this if this were your son or brother.
    Technology must find a way to arrest this DUI menace. Cars shouldn’t start if the operator is alcohol impaired.
