Arrest made in crash that killed five people in Fort Pierce
St Lucie County, Fl– An arrest has been made in a fiery crash that killed five people in St. Lucie County last month. Investigators said 21-year-old Tanner Ray Dashner rear-ended a Dodge Dakota near Midway Road and S. 25th Street on Nov. 23rd. The Dakota burst into flames, killing five people inside. Dashner is now under arrest, facing five counts of DUI Manslaughter and five counts of Vehicular Homicide. A judge set his bond at $7.5 million dollars. The Florida Highway Patrol released a crash report that said Dashner’s vehicle was traveling at an estimated 97 mph in a 30 mph zone.
The Florida Highway Patrol said Tuesday a judge granted a motion for the state’s “Duces Tecum Subpoena,” which allowed FHP investigators to arrest Dashner.
The State Attorney’s Office explained the subpoena allows them to obtain medical records for Dashner from when he was hospitalized from the crash.
FHP identified the victims as:
- 27-year-old Kedan D. Tillett of Fort Pierce
- 21-year-old Anthony Victor of Fort Pierce
- 16-year-old Anthony M. Martin of Fort Pierce
- 21-year-old Darien L. Douglas of Port St. Lucie
- 17-year-old Alexis Chaney of Fort Pierce
Dashner’s mugshot isn’t available at this time.
There will be a fundraiser tonight to help the families with funeral expenses.
