A man who is believed to be connected to a May crash that killed a high school student has been arrested.
The suspect, who has been identified as 22-year-old Robert Carroll, was arrested in late-September, police said. He was booked on suspicion committing gross vehicular manslaughter while driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Santa Rita Jail records show the man is being held on $200,000 bail bonds.
Police said the incident happened earlier this year, and it’s believed that the defendant was driving at a speed of more than 100mph when he ran a red light and struck another vehicle.
The 18-year-old victim was in the passenger seat of the car at the time of the crash.
Authorities have not said how they came to identify the suspect. If convicted, he could spend years behind bars in a California state prison. Anyone who believes they have information that could help aid in the prosecution of the suspect is asked to contact the Fremont Police Department.
