Authorities in St. Petersburg, Florida said that a driver in a stolen vehicle crashed into multiple vehicles late Friday killing three people.

22-year-old Leosvany Roman refused to pull over after stealing a Ford Mustang leading police in a chase that ended with the multi-car crash on I-275 just before 11 p.m.

Roman rammed the Ford into two Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office vehicles and continued fleeing before colliding with an FHP trooper’s vehicle.

    Roman was hit with a slew of charges including murder and vehicular homicide.

    “The additional charges he faces will ensure the only road he’s ever on again is the one that leads straight to jail.”
