A Pasco man faces vehicular homicide charges in a fatal crash in Pinellas

One man is dead and another is in jail after a crash early Saturday morning on Seminole Boulevard.

Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office investigators said Roger Kupsoff, 77, was traveling north on Seminole Boulevard in Seminole around 9:30 a.m. when Brent Rozic, 51, sped westbound in a pickup truck on 102nd Avenue N toward the intersection.

As Rozic approached, investigators said, the light at 102nd Avenue N was red. Rozic drove his truck to stop traffic into the safety lane and ran a red light, striking Kupsoff’s car and ejecting Kupsoff onto the road. Kupsoff died at the scene.

Deputies arrested Rozic, who is from New Port Richey, on charges of vehicular homicide and reckless driving. As of Saturday evening, he was being held in the Pinellas County Jail on $15,000 bond.

Investigators say speed and impairment appear to be factors and more charges are possible.
