A teenager has been charged with vehicular homicide in a collision that killed another teenager over a month ago. The 18-year-old was speeding in Buckley while under the influence of drugs and alcohol, losing control of his vehicle and slamming into a power pole, driving more than 80 mph.

The driver is currently being held with vehicular homicide charges and for leaving the scene of an injury accident.

The driver crashed into a 17-year-old driver who was ejected from his vehicle.

"They just left him to die," said Toni Jammeh, victim’s grandmother. "I'll forever have a hole in my heart. I have a hard time even making it through a day, you know, and it's not fair."

The speeding driver’s criminal record is minor; however his record shows a pattern of speeding. In fact, as the investigative team was waiting for the results of blood tests and possible charges in the fatal accident, he received another speeding ticket.

It took prosecutors more than a month to charge the driver while waiting for blood test results.

Norton's mother says she hopes the teen is held accountable for her son's death and kept off the road.

"I just want justice to be served and I appreciate the fact that the state didn't drop the case," victim’s mother said. "I just want justice to be served. He could go out and do it again."

He has been held in jail during the time of the investigation in order to keep him off the roads from speeding.

Davis Law Group sends sincere condolences to the friends and family of the victim.
