Swartz Creek Teen Charged In Deadly Wrong Way Crash [VIDEO]

Charges were handed down to eighteen-year-old Zachary Parker, of Swartz Creek.

He has been charged with second-degree murder, and seven other counts, in the Feb. 9th wrong-way crash that killed a new bride and badly injured her husband and young son. Thirty-five-year-old Mariah Bailey-Collins, the front seat passenger, from the Mt. Morris area, was killed. Her husband of just days, Bryan Collins, from Florida, was driving. Mariah’s 11-year-old son was in the back seat. Bryan and the 11-year-old are still recovering.

Parker’s blood alcohol content was .197 when he struck the trio. That’s more than twice the legal limit for someone 21 or older. Parker is charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter with a motor vehicle, operating while intoxicated causing death, reckless driving causing death, two counts of operating while intoxicated causing serious injury and two counts of reckless driving causing serious impairment of a body function.

Do you think he should get life in prison?
