Georgia star and top NFL prospect Jalen Carter faces arrest warrant after being implicated in the fatal crash that killed teammate Devin Willock and a staffer: Cops say both cars were racing through Athens streets at 2:30am
Georgia defensive tackle and top NFL Draft prospect Jalen Carter is being implicated in the January 15 car crash that claimed the lives teammate Devin Willock and recruiting coordinator Chandler LeCroy.
As a result, the Athens-Clarke County Police Department has secured an arrest warrant for the 21-year-old, who now faces misdemeanor charges of reckless driving and racing.
‘The investigation found that Chandler LeCroy, driver of the 2021 Ford Expedition, and Jalen Carter, driver of a 2021 Jeep Trackhawk, were operating their vehicles in a manner consistent with racing shortly after leaving the downtown Athens area at about 2:30 AM,’ reads the statement from Athens-Clarke County police.
‘The evidence demonstrated that both vehicles switched between lanes, drove in the center turn lane, drove in opposite lanes of travel, overtook other motorists, and drove at high rates of speed, in an apparent attempt to outdistance each other,’ the statement continues. ‘Evidence indicated that shortly before the crash the Expedition was traveling at about 104 miles per hour. The toxicology report indicated that Leroy’s blood alcohol concentration was .197 at the time of the crash. Investigators determined that alcohol impairment, racing, reckless driving, and speed were factors to the crash.’
The case is being given to Georgia’s Solicitor General’s office.
