Seabrook teen charged in fatal crash

(Continued)

Sullivan and Reams explained to the dozen or so members of the media surrounding them that speeding and driving without a license charges aren’t considered criminal offenses and that the officer who pulled her over hours before the crash acted properly.

“The incident that happened that night had nothing to do with the prosecution of the deaths or the injuries,” Reams said.

“These two incidents are completely unrelated,” Sullivan added.

The owner of the car has yet to be charged for allowing someone without a license to use the vehicle, but Reams and Sullivan said that could change as the investigation continues.

When asked if he was frustrated that Saturday’s fatal accident could occur, Reams said, “Everyone of these kinds of events is a tragedy.”
