Police say the 19-year-old killed a girl and injured two others after the car he was driving crashed into the girls in Martin County. He was high on opiates.
The Post describes a harrowing lead-up to the crash. The 19-year-old was driving a 2007 Honda Accord at a speed of 107 mph when he struck a trailer, left the road and careened through a field and ditch before slamming into a home.
He had four teens and a pre-teen passenger in the car with him.
The driver faces 5 felony charges, including one count of reckless homicide in connection with the death of a 17-year-old girl who was in his vehicle, according to the Florida Highway Patrol Department.
The Florida Highway Patrol and the Post says the car entered their home with such force it nearly exited the other side of the living room. The 19-year-old has been charged as an adult and entered a preliminary plea of not guilty.
