SEMINOLE, Fla. — Deputies arrested a 60-year-old man on Tuesday for DUI manslaughter following an investigation into a fatal four-vehicle crash that killed a father and son in Seminole.

On July 28, 2018, James Wolf, of Seminole, was driving his 2005 Chevrolet SUV westbound on Park Boulevard, approaching the intersection of 104th Lane, when deputies say he failed to stop for a red traffic light and crashed into a 2001 Lexus being driven by 59-year-old Edward Delzer, and occupied by his father 86-year-old Harvey Delzer.

Both Edward and Harvey Delzer died at the scene.

Pinellas County investigators say Wolf had the distinct odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from his breath, he showed signs of impairment and admitted to consuming alcohol prior to the crash.

The investigation reportedly revealed that Wolf's vehicle was traveling at approximately 82 mph at the time of vehicle impact.

At about 6:25 p.m. on August 14, 2018, deputies arrested Wolf at his home in Seminole.

Wolf was transported to the Pinellas County Jail without incident. He has been charged with two counts of DUI Manslaughter.
