Teacher Accused Of Crashing Into Motorcycles At 117 MPH
A teacher has been indicted by a grand jury with manslaughter after allegedly driving 117 mph and crashed into a Mesquite teen. People Magazine reported on the incident.
The teacher, a 24-year-old, was allegedly driving on I-635 on February 22nd. Multiple motorcycles were in front of her on the express lane. The police say she made contact with two of the motorcycle in the left-hand lane. By the time the crash finished, one teenager was killed and an adult was seriously injured.
Police believe that the cycles were traveling around 72 mph at the time of the crash. The teacher, on the other hand, was going at 117 mph six seconds prior to the crash. This was judged based on video surveillance, as well as crash analysis techniques.
Police came to the high school last March to arrest the teacher, and her school district placed her on administrative leave. She had been working for her district for less than a year.
We wish to extend our condolences to the family of the teen motorcyclist. If these allegations hold true and there’s no evidence that the cyclists were driving in an unsafe way, we hope they can achieve justice and closure over this tragic incident.
All of us have probably looked down at our speedometers and noticed we’ve gone a bit above the speed limit. To go that much faster requires intention.
