Pasco man charged in crash that injured three people

HUDSON — A 32-year-old man caused a four-car crash Sunday night at State Road 52 and Little Road that sent three people to the hospital, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Raymond Wade Foster of Holiday had a blood alcohol content between 0.318 and 0.308 — well above the 0.08 threshold for a DUI arrest — in a test taken four hours after the 8 p.m. collision, an FHP report states.

Two people were flown to Bayfront Medical Center, where they were treated and released. Another person was taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point.

At the crash scene, Foster urinated on the tire of his own car and pushed a deputy, authorities said. After being treated at Spring Hill Regional Hospital, Foster was arrested and charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, driving under the influence, knowingly driving with a suspended or revoked license and six counts of DUI with damage to property or person.

Foster, who spent seven months in prison in 2009 for possession of controlled substances, is being held without bail in the Pasco County jail.
