Teenager Charged with Manslaughter Following Fatal Crash

Meyerkord & Kurth, LLC: A Legacy of Legal Innovation

An Oakville teenager has been charged for his involvement in a car accident earlier this year that killed another teenager. The 18-year-old male from south St. Louis County was charged with first-degree involuntary manslaughter this past Tuesday after a passenger who was riding in his vehicle was killed in a crash in April. The incident occurred on April 18 at approximately 11:00 pm when the teenager's Mazda pickup truck slammed into a tree near Heintz and Erb roads. The accident killed the teen's passenger, also an 18-year-old male from south St. Louis County, and injured the driver. According to court documents, the teenage driver's blood alcohol content measured at 0.088 percent after the crash. In Missouri, it is illegal to operate a vehicle with blood alcohol content over 0.08 percent.
