CLERMONT — Shakeemah Jackson was driving her boyfriend's pickup truck when the couple started arguing, police said.
Johnny C. Boykin angrily accused Jackson of seeing another man, then grabbed the woman by the throat and began striking her, according to reports. He told her to pull into a RaceTrac gas station on State Road 50 so he could buy cigarettes and told her she better not leave the vehicle, police said. Jackson, however, darted inside the store and locked herself in the bathroom.
 As Boykin, 31, stood outside the door, yelling and cursing at Jackson, a store employee picked up a phone to call police. Boykin yelled that he was on parole and ran out of the store. He got into the black Chevy pickup and sped off, witnesses told police.
Moments later the Groveland man was dead.
His truck had veered off Lakeshore Drive as it headed west, striking a tree, then a mailbox and utility pole before rolling over and coming to rest near Penzance Road, according to a police investigation.
Police said it's likely Boykin was traveling faster than the posted 35 mph speed limit when he crashed at 11:53 p.m. June 25. The impact happened with such force that it caused the truckbed to dislocate from the Chevy, according to a crash report. Emergency officials found Jackson's purse on the grass.
"Maybe he was upset with himself for what he did or he was leaving the scene," police Capt. Jon Johnson said. "We'll never know."
Not long before, a police officer met with Jackson at the RaceTrac station. The 25-year-old Groveland woman had marks on her neck and above her right eye as she told the officer what had happened.
Boykin would have been charged with domestic battery by strangulation and false imprisonment, according to police.
Just about the same time police received a call about the pickup crash.
"It all happened within five or 10 minutes," Johnson said. "Officers then put two and two together."
Jackson could not be reached for comment.
It's clear that Boykin did not want the police to find him that night.
A laborer, he was released from a state prison work-release center on March 26 after serving 10 months for trafficking cocaine. He also was on probation for cocaine possession.
He had been arrested several times in Lake County dating back to 2000 for a variety of charges, including drugs and domestic battery.
