A 24-year-old woman lost her life, while her infant daughter was gravely injured in an accident following a street race. The three men responsible were arrested.
Reisinger was pronounced dead at Tampa General Hospital. Her daughter was listed as being in critical condition. On Facebook, Reisinger is listed as an employee at Food 4 Thought Cyber Cafe. She graduated from Kenston High School in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, and attended Kent State University. She married David William Raubenolt in November 2016.
The three men who were arrested in connection to the incident are 18-year-old Cameron Coyle Herrin, 20-year-old Tristan Christopher Herrin, and 17-year-old John Barrineau.
Tampa police later announced that Cameron Herrin and John Barrineau were charged with street racing, reckless driving resulting in grave bodily injury, and vehicular homicide. Tristan Herrin was charged with one count of street racing.
Cameron’s bail was set at $10,000, Tristan’s was set at $500. Both have since been bonded out. Meanwhile, Barrineau was taken to a juvenile detention center.
Residents said they could hear tires screeching and the collision. Jack Berres, who lives on the 16th floor of a condo nearby, said that he ran downstairs and saw Reisinger and her daughter on Bayshore Boulevard, “I never want to see anything like that, and then you see the yellow tape, and carrying a baby, running a baby to an ambulance. Just crazy stuff you don’t want to see.”
Several witnesses say that Reisinger was trying to cross the road near Knights Avenue when two cars came at a high speed toward her in the northbound lanes.
Cameron Herrin Drove a Black 2018 Mustang; His Brother Was in the Passenger Seat
Cameron Herrin from Tampa drove a black 2018 Mustang. His car was in the outside lane, close to the sidewalk, and struck the victims. Tristan Herrin was in the passenger seat at the time.
Tristan Herrin lists his hometown as Austin, Texas on Facebook. He graduated from Tampa Catholic High School in 2016. On his profile, he wrote: “I like to spend the nite at my friends house play airsoft and going out on my seaDoos with my dad and my friends and my brother. [sic]”
A gold Nissan was driven by John Barrineau of West Knights Avenue in Tampa. His car stopped next to the Mustang during the crash.
The drivers’ parents were with their sons after the accident, and stayed with them until police arrived. Authorities reportedly questioned the drivers for several hours at the scene.
Although there is no crosswalk on Bayshore Boulevard where the accident occurred, the mother and daughter were lawfully crossing at a pedestrian ramp in the intersection.
