St. Petersburg man faces DUI manslaughter charge

CLEARWATER – A St. Petersburg man was charged with DUI manslaughter Friday after police say he drove his truck into the back of a car stopped at a traffic light in September.

Thomas Stockton Corbin, 39, also faces a second charge of DUI causing serious bodily injury.

Here's how police say it happened:

On Sept. 24, Corbin was driving a 2005 Toyota pickup truck on Gulf to Bay Boulevard. A 1999 Nissan was stopped at Gulf to Bay Boulevard and Hampton Road. Shortly before midnight, Corbin's truck slammed into the rear of the Nissan.

All three occupants of the Nissan were seriously injured. Maxwell Limonick, 23, who was sitting in the backseat, died from his injuries on Oct. 2. The other two occupants' injuries were not life threatening.

Corbin's blood alcohol level was .20, more than double the legal limit of .08, police said. He was arrested at his home at about 12:30 a.m. Friday.
