New Port Richey teen out of hospital after crash

Teen bicyclist is out of hospital after crash

The young bicyclist who was hit by a car on U.S. 19 and critically injured Thursday afternoon has been released from the hospital, officials said. Tyler Donohoe, 16, of New Port Richey was treated and released from All Children's Hospital early Friday, a hospital official said. He was flown to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg and was in critical condition after the crash Thursday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The crash happened about 4:30 p.m. A school bus stopped in the northbound lane of U.S. 19, a half-mile north of Jasmine Boulevard, and activated its fold-out stop signs, the FHP said. With other lanes of traffic coming to a stop, Donohoe began crossing U.S. 19 going west. A 1994 Ford Mustang failed to stop and struck the bicyclist, the FHP said. Donohoe was not wearing a helmet. The driver of the Mustang was Daniel G. Holbrook, 57, of Port Richey, the FHP said. Troopers are still investigating.

Neo-Nazi will be retried in slaying

John Ditullio, the American Nazi accused of stabbing two people in a hate-fueled attack in 2006, will be retried Sept. 27. His first trial in December ended with a hung jury, which deadlocked 10-2 in favor of acquittal. Prosecutors say Ditullio, 23, was living in a compound on Teak Street with fellow neo-Nazis when he put on a gas mask one night, broke into a neighbor's home, stabbed a woman and then attacked a teenager. Patricia Wells was slashed in the face and hands but recovered from her injuries. Kristofer King, who was 17, died. In the first trial, a discrepancy over clothing may have fueled the jurors' doubts: Wells said her attacker wore khaki pants and a white shirt. Witnesses and photographs put Ditullio in red and black that night. The second trial is expected to take up to two weeks. The state is seeking the death penalty.
