Alabama Man Accused of Murder in Crash That Killed Toddler

Alabama Man Accused of Murder in Crash That Killed Toddler

Prosecutors want a 38-year-old Mobile, Alabama, man to be charged with murder and assault in connection with the 2009 high-speed crash that killed a 2-year-old girl.

During opening arguments on Monday, the man’s defense attorney told a jury, “He does not live a single day without extreme regret and remorse for what he did. This case is a lot of things. It’s an absolute tragedy. It’s the culmination of a lot of bad decisions by a lot of people. This is not a murder case.”

The crash occurred August 26, 2009, after police stopped a driver for playing his stereo too loud — a likely violation of the city’s noise ordinance. The man then fled from police. The Birmingham News reports that within 55 seconds of hitting his gas pedal and speeding down Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard the man crashed his Buick LaSabre into a Ford Taurus carrying three people, including a pregnant woman and the two-year-old victim.

After the crash, police discovered a small amount of drugs in the Buick.

The man was charged with murder, two counts of first-degree assault, second-degree possession of marijunana, possession of cocaine, and causing a death while attempting to allude police. He faces up to 20 years in prison on the murder charge.
