Land O'Lakes man faces charges in March fatal crash

TAMPA — A Land O'Lakes man faces a vehicular manslaughter charge in a three-truck crash in March that killed a New Port Richey man, authorities said.

The crash happened March 22 on U.S. 41 in Lutz. Ryan Dale Moore, 32, of Land O'Lakes was driving south in a Chevrolet pickup with Shantel Moore.

Also in the truck were children Jayden Moore, Aryanna Moore and Makayla Moore, according to state troopers.

Ryan Moore's truck veered into northbound U.S. 41, hitting a Nissan pickup that was driven by Lance Rockwell Agin of New Port Richey, troopers said.

The Nissan was hit by a GMC pickup behind it. Agin, 52, died at the scene.

Ryan and Shantel Moore were seriously injured, and the three children suffered minor injuries.

The two people in the GMC also had minor injuries.

On Tuesday, the patrol said Ryan Moore will be charged with vehicular homicide, reckless driving causing injury or property damage and three counts of felony child neglect.

He is already serving a 14-year sentence after pleading guilty in May to federal charges of conspiracy to distribute oxycodone and conspiracy to launder money.

He will face the new charges upon his release.
