On Wednesday, Kohlier’s mother Cindy Collins and her attorney, Tom Carey, announced they are filing the suit against 34-year-old Matthew Moye.

Moye, a Riverview dentist, was driving away from a Halloween party when Tampa police say he hit Kohlier and Kozar from behind at a high rate of speed.

Moye refused to give his blood, but blood was drawn after his arrest to determine whether he was drivng under the influence. Results could take six weeks.
