  • Sumo

A motorcyclist, Henry F. McCain, 66, of Spring Hill, was killed while police were in pursuit of a fleeing driver. The incident started when Pasco County Deputy Ashley Grady pulled over Brittany Miles, 21, on U.S. 19 at Florestate Drive in Hudson for reckless driving. After Miles was handcuffed, she got back into her pickup truck and drove off. Grady attempted to stop Miles from leaving but was instead dragged through three lanes of traffic. Miles then proceeded to run a red light at County Line Road and U.S. 19 in Hernando County, and collided with McCain who was heading west through the intersection on his Suzuki motorcycle. He died at the scene. Deputy Grady suffered head injuries and abrasions but is expected to recover.
Miles was eventually caught by Pasco County Florida deputies and arrested. She was treated for minor injuries at Oak Hill Hospital, and later she was booked at the Hernando County Jail. Miles was recently arrested in Pasco on April 25, 2011 for possession of methamphetamine but was released on $5,000 bail. Records also show that Miles has received seven driving citations over the past four years. She has paid a total of $649 in fines and has had her license suspended twice for failure to pay fines on time.
