Woman's Poor Decision Results In Father's Death

A North Carolina woman named Tequila Cherry decided to use her cell phone while driving. As a result, she caused a crash that killed her father. She was charged last week, in connection with the crash. To start, she was already driving with a revoked license when she and her father James drove towards a family friend's home. The 35-year-old woman was driving north on Connelly Springs Road in Connelly Springs, North Carolina when she looked down at her phone to type the address into her Google maps application.

When she looked up, she was driving over the center lane. Then, her suburban hit a black pickup truck and black Jeep. Her father James was pronounced dead on the scene. Furthermore, two other people were taken to the hospital while the remaining victims suffered non-threatening injuries. Cherry was also charged this week for driving with a revoked license at the time of the incident. North Carolina Highway Patrol Trooper F.J. Beam said he intends to present the case to the Caldwell District Attorney's office to see if additional charges will be brought against Cherry.
