The state attorney’s office has charged former Braden River High School football coach Josh Hunter with DUI manslaughter for the March car crash that killed assistant coach Doug Garrity, said Earl Varn, felony division chief, today.
The charges are the same as the ones Florida Highway Patrol investigators recommended last month.
Hunter resigned from coaching the Pirates in May, about one month after the tragedy. He did not return to teach this fall.
According to FHP reports, Hunter was driving his Ford truck at about 11:50 p.m., March 21, at the on-ramp to Interstate 75 at State Road 681 in Nokomis. The truck veered off the road and overturned after Hunter failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway.
