May 23, 2018

Two teenagers are facing vehicular homicide charges after police say one struck and killed an Ohio woman and seriously injured her 21-month-old daughter while racing on Bayshore Boulevard in Tampa.

Tampa police reported that a Ford Mustang driven by 18-year-old Cameron Herrin of Tampa struck 24-year-old Jessica Reisinger of Jeromesville, Ohio, as she was pushing her daughter Lillia Raubenolt's stroller across Bayshore near W. Knights Ave. just before noon Wednesday. Reisinger was pronounced dead at Tampa General Hospital.

Police said Reisinger and Raubenolt were attempting to cross the road legally at a pedestrian ramp at an intersection.

They added that Herrin was racing a Nissan driven by 17-year old John Barrineau. Both are charged with street racing, vehicular homicide, and reckless driving resulting in serious bodily injury. A passenger in the Mustang, 20-year-old Tristan Herrin, was charged with a misdemeanor count of street racing.

Lawyers for the three charged couldn't immediately be located.
