TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The owner of a sport utility vehicle driven the wrong way down a Florida interstate says there was nothing he could have done to stop a fiery crash that killed five people.
Scott Enfinger of Tampa told reporters Friday that he has received threats on social media since the crash early Sunday that killed Enfinger's friend Daniel Lee Morris and four University of South Florida fraternity brothers.
Authorities say Morris was observed speeding the wrong way down Interstate 275. A few minutes later, Morris crashed head-on into a car carrying the four fraternity brothers.
Hours earlier, Morris had been at a barbecue at Enfinger's home. Enfinger said Morris suddenly left the party and drove off in Enfinger's SUV. Enfinger ran after him and told other partygoers to call the police.
