[UPDATED] Exclusive: Corbin Fisher’s Dane Arrested For Leaving Scene Of Multi-Car Accident That Caused Death
Some good news for Dane today, as the Florida prosecutor on his case has amended the charge Dane was facing (316.027(2)(c)—leaving scene of crash involving death) to now be 316.027(2)(a): Leaving the scene of crash involving injury. The first degree felony is now a third degree felony, and Dane’s potential maximum prison time dropped from 30 years to 5 years. Here’s the court docket with the list of Dane’s charges, which shows the amendment entered on Friday (click to enlarge):
It’s unclear why the 316.027 charge was changed from a death to an injury (the docket provides no explanation), so this was either a major clerical error that no one caught for over two months, or perhaps the dead person came back to life? Or, someone did die during the crash, but the prosecution determined there wasn’t enough evidence to prove that Dane had knowledge of this and/or directly caused the death. The amended injury charge obviously means that someone else was injured during the crash, and the state believes (for now) that they can convict Dane for leaving the accident that resulted in that injury. As you’ll recall, after ramming into one car while losing control of his own vehicle as he attempted to make a right turn, Dane then collided head-on with another car, per the accident report. Dane then drove away in his Camaro and was arrested hours later at his home after allegedly removing the license plate from his car.
Dane has still pleaded not guilty to all the felony and misdemeanor charges (leaving the scene of the crash with injury and damages, reckless driving), and his first pre-trial date is scheduled for January 18th, 2023.
Original story as first published on September 21st, 2022 is below.
Corbin Fisher gay porn star Dane has been arrested and is facing a first degree felony charge in Florida after allegedly leaving the scene of a four-car accident that resulted in one death. The mug shot from his September 14th arrest is above. The felony charge—316.027(2)(c): leaving scene of crash involving death—is punishable by up to 30 years in prison.
One of the witnesses of the crash followed Dane in their car and was able to take a photo of his license plate as he sped away. Dane was arrested at his home in Daytona Beach—where police say he had removed the license plate from his car—approximately two hours later, and he then spent two days in jail before posting $2,500 bond last Friday. Dane’s next court date is his arraignment on October 4th in Volusia County.
The police affidavit below doesn’t state that Dane knew someone was killed as a result of the crash, and it doesn’t explicitly state that Dane caused the crash (determining who was at fault will likely come later), although it’s certainly implied based on the narrative. After ramming into one car while losing control of his own vehicle as he attempted to make a right turn, Dane then collided head-on with another car, per the report. After that head-on collision, Dane then immediately drove away in his red Chevy Camaro, per eyewitness accounts. Dane is identified as the driver of “Vehicle-1” in the affidavit below (click image to enlarge text):
As the affidavit continues, police describe arriving at Dane’s home, locating his car in the garage (with the license plate removed), and taking him into custody. The arresting officer writes that Dane claims he was going to call police about the crash “when his girlfriend got home from work,” and the reason he left the crash was because “he was scared” someone at the scene had an object he believed was a gun.

Upon closer reading of the charging affidavit, Dane’s first appearance in court, and the Florida statute under which he’s been charged, it appears that the person killed in the crash was not one of the drivers of the other three vehicles, but was either a pedestrian or a bicyclist who is identified as a “Vulnerable Road User” in the case documents and Dane’s charge sheet:
Per Florida statute, a “vulnerable road user” is defined as follows:
1. A pedestrian, including a person actually engaged in work upon a highway, or in work upon utility facilities along a highway, or engaged in the provision of emergency services within the right-of-way;2. A person operating a bicycle, an electric bicycle, a motorcycle, a scooter, or a moped lawfully on the roadway;3. A person riding an animal; or
4. A person lawfully operating on a public right-of-way, crosswalk, or shoulder of the roadway:a. A farm tractor or similar vehicle designed primarily for farm use;b. A skateboard, roller skates, or in-line skates;c. A horse-drawn carriage;d. An electric personal assistive mobility device; ore. A wheelchair.
As noted above, the charging affidavit does not state how, exactly, this person was killed, nor does it make direct mention of the deceased person. But, someone was killed during the accident involving Dane and the other three cars, as Dane’s first degree felony charge is 316.027(2)(c): leaving the scene of an accident with a death. It’s unclear whether it was Dane’s car or one of the other cars he hit that led to the death of the “vulnerable road user,” but it’s reasonable to assume that Dane didn’t directly run someone over and drive away, otherwise he’d obviously be charged with murder. I’ve made an attempt to receive clarification from Dane, but it’s unlikely I’ll hear anything back as he awaits trial.
Dane is one of the longest running Corbin Fisher models on the studio roster, having been performing with the studio since 2016 in over 100 gay and bisexual porn scenes. His most recent video, a bi three-way, was released last week.
