Kawme Delanta Otis McGregory, 18, of 1491 U.S. Highway 70 West, was charged with two counts of felony death by motor vehicle and one count each of felony serious injury by motor vehicle, fleeing to elude arrest, reckless driving to endanger, speeding over 65 mph, driving after consuming alcohol under age 21 and driving without a license.

McGregory was taken into custody upon his release from WakeMed and was being held in the Wake County jail under a $1 million bond.

The chase started on Feb. 23 when Garner officers tried to stop a speeding car on Garner Road near New Rand Road and the driver sped off.

The officers lost sight of the car on Rush Street but later saw it had been involved in a crash with a white van on I-40 near Hammond Road.

The van, which belonged to Neighbor to Neighbor Ministries in Raleigh, was trying to make a left turn from Hammond Road onto the highway ramp when the crashed occurred, according to a police report.

Shada Sahquea Taylor, 25, a passenger in the fleeing car, was killed in the crash. Erieyana J. Holloway, 14, a passenger in the van, died the following morning from her injuries.

McGregory, the van driver, Shaun Dontay Jackson, 36, of Raleigh, and a 12-year-old boy also were injured in the crash.

    "two counts of felony death by motor vehicle and one count each of felony serious injury by motor vehicle, fleeing to elude arrest, reckless driving to endanger, speeding over 65 mph, driving after consuming alcohol under age 21 and driving without a license"

    And how much time will he get behind bars for this. I bet less than 2 years the way out system works. And he had a rap sheet including record for selling drugs (cocaine).
