Negley man charged with traffic death of teen
A grand jury in Columbiana County has handed up a secret indictment charging a Negley man with the death of a fifteen-year-old girl who died when the car they were in crashed in February.
Corey Evans, 19, faces arraignment on charges of aggravated vehicular homicide, operating a vehicle under the influence of controlled substances, and OVI.
Troopers say that neither 18-year-old Corey Evans, nor his 15-year-old Angie Perkins was wearing a seat belt when the Chevy Cavalier being driven by Evans went off State Route 154 just west of Negley, striking a guardrail, a ditch, an embankment, and utility pole before overturning.
Evans suffered minor injuries according to troopers. Perkins was thrown from the car and died.
