— A Robbins man has been charged in a fatal crash near Aberdeen last week that occurred after his car skidded off a snowy road, authorities said.

Viacente Osvaldo Castillo Gonzalez, 24, of 195 Huey Road, was charged Monday with death by vehicle and having no operator's license. He was being held in the Moore County jail Tuesday under a $20,000 bond.

Gonzalez was driving on Sandpit Road on Feb. 11 when he lost control on the snow-covered roadway, the State Highway Patrol said. The car went off the right side of the road, and Gonzalez over-corrected and struck a tree, troopers said.

Passenger Breanna Lynn Tile, 23, died at FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital in Pinehurst.

    $20,000 bond is not enough. He should get the maximum sentence. If he is here illegally, then ICE should be notified before finishing his sentence.

    Of course he didn't have a license. Do any of them?

    So is everything that happens when it is raining or snowing "weather related". What about when a couple have been drinking all day, get cabin fever, start arguing and then one kills the other? Will that be a "weather related domestic homicide"? People die every day in this state in collisions due to simple negligence, not just when it snows.
