TAMPA — A man was arrested on a charge of DUI manslaughter Wednesday after police say he caused the death of a 64-year-old woman.

Police said Timothy Wysocki, 25, of Clearwater drove his Mercedes-Benz through a red light at N Meridian Avenue and E Twiggs Street about 11:40 p.m. Wednesday and crashed into a 2007 Corolla driven by Daniel Galloway, 58, of Riverview. Galloway's passenger, Bernadine Davis Smith, of Riverview, 64, died at the scene.

An officer investigating the crash said Wysocki showed signs of alcohol impairment, and he was transported to Tampa General Hospital, where officers used a search warrant to force a blood test. From there Wysocki was taken to the Orient Road Jail, where he remained without bail Thursday.
