News: Police arrest man for Dale Mabry Hwy crash that killed woman 


TAMPA, FL – Tampa Police arrested a 22-year-old man after causing a two-vehicle collision on Dale Mabry Highway, which claimed one life and injured another Monday. 

This collision happened before 10:30 a.m. along West South Avenue, Bay News 9 said. Police said the 22-year-old man — Andy Moya Robainia — was racing another driver, going at a high rate, when he crashed his 2011 BMW into a 2015 Nissan Versa. 

Police said first responders took the Nissan occupants — a white man in his 70s, the driver, and passenger, a white woman in her early 60s — to a hospital. There, the woman passed away, and the man was set to receive treatment for unspecified wounds. 

Robainia was unharmed and “charged with one felony count of vehicular homicide and one misdemeanor count of unlawful racing on a highway.” 

Police are trying to determine the other driver who raced against Robainia. 

Officers shut down most of the area before reopening all lanes Monday night.

When you pursue legal action, the other driver will not only be held accountable for the pain they caused you and your family, but the money you receive as a result could be used to terminate any existing medical bills that emerged when your loved one spent time in the hospital prior to their passing. The compensation can also be used to account for lost income and be used as a means of paying for a funeral, burial, or memorial service to honor your loved one’s memory and legacy.
