Driver charged months after deadly wrong-way crash on Turnpike

Hubert Gaye charged with manslaughter, reckless driving


ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – A man accused of killing a woman while driving the wrong way on the Florida Turnpike in Orange County is facing charges, nearly a year after the crash. 

Florida Highway Patrol troopers took Hubert Gaye into custody over the weekend. 

Investigators say Gaye was drunk when he somehow started going northbound in the southbound lanes of the highway near Colonial Drive on Christmas Day in 2016.

Troopers say Gaye collided with a car head-on killing Vida Linton, who was a passenger in the car. 

Gaye is charged with manslaughter and reckless driving. 

He is now out of jail after posting bond.
