Hudson man charged in fatal December crash on U.S. 19

NEW PORT RICHEY — A 46-year-old Hudson man has been charged in a December crash that killed a woman on a moped.

The Florida Highway Patrol says Michael E. Yoder was intoxicated when his 2004 Lincoln sedan hit the moped about 9:30 p.m. Dec. 15 on U.S. 19 near Bougenville Drive. The impact killed 27-year-old Desiree L. Clements of New Port Richey, the passenger on the moped. The moped's driver, Anthony Cribaro, 24, of Hudson was seriously injured and has had several brain surgeries since the crash, FHP said.

Yoder's blood alcohol level was 0.095, just over the 0.08 threshold at which Florida law presumes impairment.

Yoder, of 13733 Bryndlewood Court, faces charges of DUI, DUI with property damage, DUI with serious bodily injury and DUI manslaughter. He remained jailed Monday with bail set at $16,000.
