Hamilton County Grand Jury indicted Trevor Guthrie for the death of Ley Meridith Birmingham. The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Division investigation reveals that Ley Birmingham and Jonathon Crowe had been visiting with Trevor Guthrie at his home where allegedly alcohol was provided to the two minors. After visiting with Guthrie, Birmingham and Crowe left to go to a local store. The accident occurred after leaving the store. Alcohol and high-speed driving are thought to be contributing factors in the accident.
In older children, many deaths were associated with alcohol abuse. Kliegman reports that two thirds of child passengers in motor vehicles, over the age of 14, that die are generally associated with a drunk driver.
