Daniel Bagwell of Bartow died at the scene of the July 6 crash, after he was impaled by a piece of vinyl fence. Brondon Manning arrested for vehicular homicide and participating in an unlawful race.

HIGHLANDS CITY – A Lakeland man has been charged with causing the death of another man while the two were racing their vehicles in July on U.S. 98 near Cypress Avenue Southeast.

Brondon Manning, 22, was arrested Wednesday and charged with vehicular homicide and participating in an unlawful race, according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.

He was released from Polk County Jail early Thursday morning after posting $10,500 bail, according to PCSO spokesman Brian Bruchey.

Manning was uninjured in the July 6 crash that killed Daniel Bagwell, 27, of Bartow.

The two men, who did not know each other, were headed southbound on U.S. 98 near Clubhouse Road just before 11 a.m. when they began to weave in and out of traffic in excess of 90 mph, according to the PCSO.

Manning lost control of his black Acura and struck Bagwell’s silver Dodge Ram pickup, the PCSO said. The momentum carried both vehicles into an unoccupied building at 5705 U.S. 98 S.

Bagwell was impaled by a section of white plastic fencing and died at the scene.
