A young Pennsylvania man has been charged with vehicular homicide while driving drunk. It happened just two days after his high school graduation. The accident resulted in the death of a female college student.
The suspected drunk driver, Ethan Kenney, 19, faces a preliminary hearing Friday on 13 total counts stemming after an accident that killed 19-year-old Catherine Healy. Healy was attending Penn State-Behrend and was the only passenger when Kenney’s pickup crashed about 4:00 a.m. in June 9th.
Samuel Davis, Kenney’s attorney, called the crash “a terrible tragedy” and Healy’s death the most significant part of the case. Still, he’s hoping the charge of vehicular homicide while driving drunk can be dismissed because it carries a mandatory 3 – 6 year prison sentence.
