A Tampa Bay man accused in a wrong-way crash that killed a Plant City grandmother turned himself in on Thursday.
Osbaldo Campos is charged with vehicular homicide – a stiffer charge than he originally faced in connection with the May 12 crash. Campos was originally charged with disobeying a police officer and was released from jail on $500 bond.
Early Friday morning, Campos posted bond on the new charge and was released again.
Plant City Police later started looking for him with a warrant for the other charge. He turned himself in with an attorney on Thursday.
“Investigators, in collaboration with the State Attorney’s Office conducted a thorough and impartial investigation, exercising due caution to ensure that an appropriate evaluation of the evidence and circumstances surrounding the crash was conducted,” a Plant City police spokesman said in a news release.
Claudia Alderman, 60, was killed in the crash on West Baker Street in Plant City earlier this week. Alderman’s family now has an attorney for a possible wrongful death lawsuit. Asked who the lawsuit would target, attorney Michael Politis said it would be any and all parties he believes to be “negligent in causing the death of Claudia Alderman.”
