OCALA, Fla. -

Authorities have arrested a man they say sped through a red light and crashed into vehicle, killing an Ocala couple.

The Florida Highway Patrol arrested 30-year-old Allen Cole Godwin on Thanksgiving Day. He's charged with two counts each of DUI manslaughter and vehicular homicide in the Oct. 24 crash that killed 67-year-old Ray Allen Kraus and his 64-year-old wife Pamela Jean Kraus.

The Ocala Star-Banner reports the FHP estimates Godwin was travelling 78 mph when he ran the red light. Tests revealed his blood-alcohol level was .19, well above the state's legal limit of .08.

After the crash, Godwin was flown to a Gainesville hospital where he was initially listed in critical condition.

Godwin was booked into jail. No attorney was listed on jail records.
