Florida Highway Patrol officials recently filed DUI manslaughter charges against a Leesburg man in connection with a drunk driving accident that claimed the life of his passenger. Troopers say that the accident occurred around 2:45 a.m. on County Road 452 near Lake Yale Baptist Assembly Road near Umatilla in Lake County when the driver lost control of his 1996 Ford SUV, drove onto the shoulder, overcorrected and rolled several times. His passenger, a 31-year-old Lady Lake man, was ejected from the SUV during the accident and was rolled over by the vehicle when he landed. The driver was booked into the Lake County Jail and released on $50,500 bail.
