A misdemeanor has been filed against the teenage driver who was involved in an accident that killed a 13-year-old girl who was a passenger in the teenager’s SUV. It is alleged that Jacob Washington (16) lost control of the Chevrolet SUV while he was driving near the Grand Prairie-Mansfield border last Friday night.
The passenger in the car, Miss Kelsee Williams was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown from the vehicle as the car rolled over several times. Kelsee died a short time after that at Methodist Medical Center. Washington now faces charges that allege that he failed to maintain proper control of the vehicle as well as allowed an underage child to ride in the vehicle, wearing no seatbelt.
Police claim the accident occurred when another girl, who was 15 years of age, bumped the steering wheel or Washington’s arm when she was reaching towards the front to change the radio station. The teens were on their way back home from a homecoming game at Mansfield High School, where the accident took place.
Jacob and the two other kids who were in the car did not have any injuries resulting from the accident.
