Man faces vehicular homicide charge in Feb. 20 Tampa crash

TAMPA — A man who was arrested last month after police said he tried to flee from a traffic crash was arrested again early Tuesday after a driver involved in the crash died.

Delvin Darrell Williams, 33, faces charges of vehicular homicide, leaving the scene of a crash with death and aggravated fleeing to elude. The charges stem from the death of 30-year-old Antonio Edward Lang, who had been injured in a Feb. 20 crash near the intersection of Chelsea and 40th streets in Tampa.

On that day, Williams sped through a stop sign and lost control of the car he was driving, crashing into Lang's car, according to Tampa police. An officer in the area heard the crash, drove to the scene and spotted Williams running away, police said.

The officer caught up with Williams and arrested him. Williams was booked in jail that day on several charges, including leaving the scene of a crash with injury and reckless driving. He later bailed out of jail.

Lang later died at Tampa General Hospital and authorities issued a warrant on the more serious vehicular homicide charge. Williams was arrested just after 1 a.m. Tuesday at his home at 8513 Blue Ridge Drive. He was held on $150,000 bail.

Records show Williams has a lengthy arrest history, which includes multiple previous charges of driving with a suspended license. In 2010, he served time in federal prison after a conviction on drug-related charges.
