Driver Was Going 157 MPH When He Slammed Into Another SUV Killing Teen: Cops
A man was doing more than twice the speed limit when he crashed into another car, killing a teen, authorities in Texas said.
Bryce Abernathy, 22, was arrested by police in Fort Worth, Texas, this week and charged with manslaughter and two counts of aggravated assault.
Around 11 p.m. on March 15, a white Camaro — driven by Abernathy — was driving on I-20 when it hit an SUV, according to Fort Worth police. The SUV’s driver was killed and two passengers were injured.
The victim was identified as 19-year-old Shaundi Kyree Smallwood, according to WFAA.
Investigators determined that Abernathy was traveling at 157 mph in a 70-mph zone when the crash happened, according to Fort Worth police.
“Reckless driving is irresponsible, egregious and dangerous,” Fort Worth police said in a statement. “Drivers are encouraged to exercise caution and responsibility when operating a motor vehicle.”
