TARPON SPRINGS – A 29-year-old Clearwater man was arrested for DUI manslaughter and vehicular homicide in connection with Feb. 16 fatality crash at the intersection of East Lake and Keystone roads in Tarpon springs.

Dustin Lee Rhoades was traveling in a 2008 Ford Explorer, and Denise Diometre, 65, of New Port Richey was traveling in a 2012 Hyundai Elantra northbound on East Lake Road about 11:29 p.m., according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The Elantra was in front of the Explorer.

Troopers say that the Explorer overtook the Elantra and collided with the rear of the Elantra within the intersection. The vehicles departed the roadway and came to rest of the east shoulder north of the intersection.

Diometre was transported to Trinity Hospital where she later died from injuries suffered in the crash. Rhoades was later arrested after providing a breath sample of 0.16 and booked into the Pinellas County Jail at 4:34 a.m. Bond was set at $40,000.
