LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- A man is facing two felony vehicular homicide charges after a rollover crash in April that took the life of a pregnant woman in Lehigh Acres.
24-year-old Bobby Hodges of Lehigh Acres is facing two 2nd degree vehicular homicide charges and one charge of fleeing/eluding police.
It started on 10th Street East when a Lee County deputy attempted to pull Hodges over, but he did not stop. Hodges fled at high speed and the deputy did not pursue.
A short time later, Hodges lost control of the vehicle while making a pass on Joel Boulevard. His SUV rolled over several times, ejecting the passenger, 18-year-old Mariah Pitts, who was pregnant.
Pitts and her unborn baby were pronounced dead at the scene.
Hodges was arrested early Thursday morning following an "exhaustive" investigation.
