TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — A man faces DUI charges for a crash on the Courtney Campbell Causeway that killed two people early in the morning on April 13.

Tampa police said 33-year-old Joshua Roelofs was driving 103 miles per hour seconds before he hit the back of a 2005 Kia Sorrento with four people inside after midnight.

The car rolled and all four people in it were ejected, according to police. Two 44-year-old men died at the scene. A 36-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman were taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

During an interview with Roelofs after the crash, investigators noticed he had bloodshot eyes, slowed speech and had the smell of alcohol on him after the crash. A blood test found Roelofs to be under the influence.

The crash closed the Courtney Campbell Cause way for hours.

Roelofs was arrested over the weekend on two counts of DUI manslaughter and two counts of DUI serious bodily injury.

News Channel 8 learned Roelofs is a former Deputy with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office. He was terminated after five years. Jail records show he’s currently self-employed with solar roofing.
