MEMPHIS — An Arkansas man has been indicted in a crash that killed a 22-year-old Tennessee woman.
The Shelby County district attorney's office said Monday that 28-year-old William Lapradd has been charged with reckless vehicular homicide. He is out of jail on $60,000 bail.
Investigators say Lapradd of West Memphis was driving his SUV in Memphis in February 2016 when he ran a red light and hit a car that was turning in front of him. Aries Brooks, a passenger in the car, died at a hospital.
The case is now in criminal court. Michael Snell, Lapradd's lawyer when the case was in a lower court, said Lapradd is not guilty.
Snell said the driver of the other car had a suspended license and should not have been behind the wheel.
