Accused drunk driver charged with vehicular homicide after 13-year-old dies

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - A 13-year-old boy died after sustaining injuries from a car accident caused by an accused drunk driver.

Hezekiah Keyon Moss, 13, suffered serious head trauma and was taken by helicopter to The MED in critical condition. Moss died at The MED Sunday afternoon after the crash near the intersection of Hacks Cross Road and Meadow Vale Drive.

According to investigators, Quincy Johnson, 27, was driving northbound on Hacks Cross Road when he blacked out and crossed into a lane of oncoming traffic. The car he hit was carrying four people, including the 13-year-old boy and an 18-month-old baby.

The other three passengers suffered minor injures.

Quincy Johnson was not wearing a seatbelt and was not injured in the crash. He appeared to be intoxicated, which was later proven by a breath test when he blew a .083, according to police.

In addition to DUI and reckless driving, Johnson faces one count of vehicular homicide and two counts of vehicular assault.

Johnson turned himself in Monday night on the vehicular homicide-related charges. He has since posted a $200,000 bond.
