Seffner man turns himself in to face DUI manslaughter charges

PLANT CITY — A Seffner man faces DUI manslaughter charges after turning himself in to authorities for an Oct. 31 crash.

Roy Margison, 46, is accused of DUI manslaughter and DUI with serious bodily injury. Margison was arrested Jan. 28 and was released from jail after posting $25,000 bail.

Carlos Camacho, 49, died and his daughter, Elise Berk, 19, was hospitalized after his Harley-Davidson struck the front of Margison's Ford Explorer in Plant City as he backed out of his driveway. The impact of the crash threw them off the motorcycle and onto the pavement.

Camacho died at Lakeland Regional Hospital after the 10 p.m. crash.
