HUNTERSVILLE, NC (WBTV) - A teen is facing several charges in a fatal Huntersville crash that happened just days after Christmas.
Jonathan Bales, 16, was driving a black Honda Accord when he went off the road after making a turn. He over-corrected, causing his vehicle to spin out of control, officials say. The car crossed the center line and collided with a Jeep Patriot, driven by Lisa May Overfield, who later died from her injuries.
Speed was a factor in the crash, officials say.
Bales was charged with involuntary manslaughter and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon causing serious injury. He was served with an arrest warrant Thursday evening.
Michael Croxton and a toddler who were in the Jeep were both injured during the crash and sent to the hospital with serious injuries. A passenger in the Honda, Angelica Toledo, was also injured in the crash.
Huntersville Fire Department also confirmed two dogs were killed in the crash.
