— Raleigh police increased the charges Friday against a man who allegedly caused a fatal accident.

Aleksey Glazunov, 24, of 3521 Piedmont Drive, was passing another vehicle on Skycrest Drive Dec. 2 when he lost control and slammed head-on into a car being driven by Teresa Bagley Weintraub, police said.

Weintraub, 57, was on her way to work at Duke Raleigh Hospital when she died, police said.

Police filed a charge of involuntary manslaughter against Glazunov Friday. He had originally been charged with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle and aggressive driving, offenses that carry a maximum penalty of five months in jail.

Glazunov's criminal record shows a history of speeding violations.

Glazunov apologized to Weintraub's family after the wreck, but has declined to discuss the case further. He was re-arrested Friday and released on $50,000 bond.

    Thanks for the increased charge but its really too little too late. It will not do Teresa any good. Aleksey is already out of jail and probably driving again after simply paying a minimal fee. What a broken system we have...our police and prosecutors are not doing their jobs and as a result bad drivers continue to wreak havoc on us.
