Brooksville man accused of vehicular homicide in street racing death

BROOKSVILLE — The Florida Highway Patrol arrested a 20-year-old man Sunday in connection with the death of a friend he had been racing in February.

Paul Thomas Snyder of Brooksville faces charges of vehicular homicide, leaving the scene of a crash involving death, racing, driving with a suspended license, operating an unregistered vehicle and no insurance.

Snyder and his friend Jonathan Parker, 18, also of Brooksville, were racing their Honda Civics on WPA Road the evening of Feb. 9, according to the patrol, when Snyder cut in front of Parker, who spun into a tree and died.

After Parker hit the tree, Snyder sped off, the patrol said.

He was arrested Sunday night after an investigation and booked into the Hernando County Jail on $16,250 bail.
