Oxford Police Dispel Rumors and Formally Charge Collierville in Injury and Death of Ole Miss Students on The Oxford Square

The Oxford Police Department has formally charged Seth Rokitka (24 of Collierville, Tennessee) with one count of Manslaughter, one count of Aggravated DUI, one count of Duties of Driver Involved in Accident Resulting in Death, and one count of Duties of Driver Involved in Accident Resulting in Personal Injury. Duties of a Driver Involved in Accident Resulting in Death/Personal Injury is also known as Leaving the Scene of an Accident Involving Death/Personal Injury.

Rokitka was taken before a Justice Court Judge for his initial appearance and given a bond of $1,000,000.

Tristan Holland (18 of Collierville, Tennessee) is still at the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office Jail. There is no timeline for extradition as of now.

We want to take this time to dispel rumors about the incident:

  • Seth Rokitka and Tristan Holland had no prior interactions with either victim prior to striking them with his truck. 
  • There were no fights or alterations and their paths did not cross. They were at separate establishments the entire night.
  • Rokitka and Holland did not render aid or call 911 even though they knew what they had just done.
