Christopher Frank Dohmen
PALM HARBOR – Florida High Patrol troopers arrested a Palm Harbor man Thursday, Aug. 7, in connection with an Aug. 4 hit and run crash on Belcher Road just north of Alderman Road in Palm Harbor.

Troopers have been looking for Christopher Frank Dohmen, 24, after verifying he was the driver of a 1999 Chrysler 300. The vehicle is registered in his name.

According to FHP’s report, the Chrysler was traveling southbound on Belcher Road “at a high rate of speed,” Aug. 4 when the driver lost control of the vehicle as it passed through the intersection with Alderman Road.

The car sideswiped a 2014 Nissan Altima, being driven by Nicolas Diamantidis, 62, of Merrick, New York. After the Chrysler hit the Altima, it rotated clockwise, struck a curb, overturned and collided with a Duke Energy light pole. After hitting the pole, the vehicle continued to overturn for another 1,700 feet.

The driver and two passengers in the Altima were transported to Florida Hospital where they were treated for minor injuries and released.

Ashley Love, 25, of Largo, a passenger in the Chrysler, was ejected from the car. Troopers say she was not wearing a seat belt. She was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital with serious injuries.

Love was subsequently arrested for battery upon EMS personnel and violation of probation. She was booked into the Pinellas County Jail Aug. 5 where she is being held without bond on a warrant issued by law enforcement in Georgia.

Dohmen was charged with leaving the scene of a crash with injury, leaving the scene with property damage and driving while license suspended. He also was ticketed for speeding and careless driving. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail Aug. 7. Bond was set at $10,500.

Dohmen has nine prior booking reports at the county jail, going back to 2008, when he was charged with trafficking in oxycodone and possession of marijuana.
