Teen Faces Murder Charges After Sick 'Prank' with Eggs Ends in Woman's Death

Share

It may have seemed like a prank, but the potential for danger was clear as a group of teenagers threw eggs at moving cars and ran a red light during a car chase. And now an innocent woman has died because of their misguided idea about how to have fun.

On the evening of New Year’s Day, Harris County, Texas, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez shared the tragic tale on Twitter as details were uncovered. The story and images are horrifying.

About an hour later, Gonzalez added a few more details about the accident. As bad as the story looked when he started sharing it, the new details added a new level of wrong to the event.

Moments later, the sheriff shared an image of the wrecked vehicle. He also wrote that the victim apparently had only been out on a harmless errand when her life was ended.

Early the next morning, Gonzalez provided another update to the story. The teen driver is now facing some serious consequences due to his poor choices in how to have fun.

When the sheriff gave another update to the case, he identified the innocent victim of the crash.

Some may ask why a 14-year-old was driving. Others may ask where his parents were.

Throwing eggs at cars driving on the road is dangerous for all involved. Like cases in which rocks were thrown off overpasses at cars, such things can lead to accidents and deaths.

Those engaged in such activities can be and are charged with murder. To some, such a charge and the resulting penalties are justice.

Once the other driver is interviewed, more details may come to light. For now, a 14-year-old is charged with murder and may face a long jail sentence or worse, all because he made a series of very bad choices in search of a good time.
