Father of DUI Crash Victim Arrested for Drunk Driving

By:

Five-year-old Summer Moll suffered a fractured skull and other serious injuries in a car accident that killed her mother last year. A drunk driver struck their vehicle head-on in September.

Earlier this month, while Summer was preparing to undergo another operation to repair injuries she sustained in the crash, her father was arrested for DUI. Joshua Moll was released from jail in Tampa, Fla., this morning as his daughter was re-admitted to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit after the surgery.

During the surgery, doctors found Summer had an infection under the metal plate that was placed in her head after the accident. Her maternal grandmother, Tammy Rosian, said that doctors are now waiting for the results of a CAT scan before deciding what treatment Summer should undergo next.

The Tampa police say that they were called to "The Rack" at approximately 1:40 a.m. because of a disturbance. Witnesses say that Joshua Moll was harassing women inside of the establishment and caused a scene when security asked him to leave. He reportedly drove his truck through the parking lot in an aggressive and erratic manner before being stopped by the police.

Officers noted Moll showed obvious signs of impairment and he was arrested for suspicion of DUI. Police say he was verbally abusive and made numerous threats during the arrest.

According to the St. Petersburg Times, Joshua Moll moved from Texas to Florida after the accident to pursue custody of Summer. Family members reportedly say that prior to the tragic crash that killed mother Jennifer O'Boyle, Joshua Moll was not a regular part of his daughter's life.

Following O'Boyle's death, Rosian has cared for Summer. In December, Moll was granted shared custody of his daughter with Rosian. Another custody hearing is scheduled.
