Girlfriend of man sought in fatal St. Petersburg crash arrested

June 30, 2014 

ST. PETERSBURG -- As the search continues for the man police believe caused a triple fatal crash in St. Petersburg last week, police have arrested his girlfriend.

According to St. Petersburg police, 25-year-old Brittany Donar is accused of lying to police. She was questioned at police headquarters Sunday night, then taken to the Pinellas County Jail. She bonded out early Monday morning.

Donar has been charged with obstruction and being accessory after the fact in relation to their ongoing efforts to locate Marquice Anderson, who police say sped the wrong way down a St. Petersburg street and crashed into a Saturn sedan, killing three women.

Investigator said Donar, who has a relationship with Anderson, provided false and misleading information which has hindered their efforts to find him.

Donar was also the person who rented the 2012 Chrysler driven by Anderson, 27, at the time of the accident.

Grace Lashawn Collier, 25, Briana Lequinda Campbell, 24, and Jamesia Chera Santoria Lang, 21, all died in the crash at 16th Street and 9th Avenue South early Thursday morning. Campbell and Lang died at the scene. Collier was hospitalized before being taken off life support on Friday.

According to officials, Anderson is wanted for vehicular homicide, leaving the scene of an accident involving death, driving while license is suspended or revoked involving death and violation of probation.

Anderson is described as 6-foot-4, 205 lbs, and has the name Gloria tattooed on his right forearm. He also has the names Sylvia and Domonque tattooed on his left forearm.

Anyone with information regarding Anderson's whereabouts is asked to contact Special Deputy Chris Herron of the U.S. Marshals Service at 727-639-1167.
