DELTONA, FL – Eleven months after a motor vehicle accident killed two elderly men, the other driver, a Deltona man who was also severely injured, has been arrested and charged with two counts of vehicular homicide in their deaths.

According to authorities, Robert Shavers Jr., 46, was arrested Tuesday on a warrant issued this week by the State Attorney’s Office in the June 25, 2021, crash. He was also charged with operating an unregistered motor vehicle, failure to use proper lane, improper change of lane, improper change of lanes in an intersection and driving too fast for conditions.

Shavers, who remains paralyzed from his injuries, was transported to the Volusia County Branch Jail and released. He is scheduled for a first court appearance in June.

Shavers’ arrest was the culmination of Volusia Sheriff’s traffic homicide detectives conducting a long, extensive investigation into the crash and working closely with the State Attorney’s Office.

The crash occurred at 2:31 p.m. at the intersection of East Normandy Boulevard and Clay Court. Shavers was driving his 2003 Dodge Ram truck and lost control of his vehicle northeast of the intersection, causing it to skid, spin and veer into a 2015 Volkswagen Passat traveling southwest on East Normandy.

The driver of the Volkswagen, Donald Glenn Fisher, 84, was deceased at the scene. His passenger, Thomas Allen Snip, 79, died of his injuries the next day.

A check into Shavers’ criminal history shows he was arrested in May 2017, charged with Driving with License Canceled/Suspended or Revoked.
