ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Police in Florida's Gulf coast say the driver of a vehicle that crashed into a home and then caught fire was killed.
Authorities identified the driver as Jason Skinner, who was also a person of interest in a domestic violence homicide on Tuesday.
Police say Skinner died inside the vehicle. Authorities got a call in the afternoon of a screaming woman, who then hung up. Tampa police went to the home and found a woman dead. She had filed a domestic violence injunction against him last month. He was the woman's boyfriend.
Authorities say the man lost control of the vehicle and slammed into the home after a brief chase on an unrelated traffic violation.
