On Wednesday, Tyler Zimmerman, 27, was arrested for DUI causing death to human/unborn child in relation to a Memorial Day crash last year.
The crash occurred near South Washington Avenue and Riveredge Drive in Titusville when the motorcycle driven by Zimmerman slammed into the rear of another vehicle.
The passenger on the motorcycle, 29-year-old Kristen Kief, was taken to a local hospital where she later passed away due to her injuries sustained from the accident.
An affidavit stated that Zimmerman showed signs of impairment and smelled of alcohol while also having no recollection of his own passenger at the scene.
His blood alcohol content was 1.53 times over the legal limit according to records.
Fortunately, there were no injuries reported by the driver of the other vehicle involved in this tragedy.
“Our highest priority is motorist and pedestrian safety and driving under the influence is irresponsible, inexcusable and illegal”, said Traffic Homicide Investigator Kaitlyn Kelly. “Our department continues to worked diligently to bring justice to Ms. Kief and her family”, added Kelly.
