An impaired motorcyclist was reportedly going nearly 100 MPH when he was involved in a crash that killed his passenger.
The Glendale Police Department say that on October 15, Samson James Everett, 27, was riding a motorcycle at between 98 and 107 miles per hour when going over the overpass at 67th and Northern avenues.
Police report that the motorcycle hit a concrete barrier hurling the passenger, Danielle Cote, 21, over the wall, landing 34 feet below. Everett and the motorcycle continued another 700 feet until striking a guard rail, sending Everett flying another 200 feet.
Cote was pronounced dead at the scene, while Everett survived and was transported to a hospital. A toxicology report from the hospital reportedly shows Everett had a BAC level of .192.
After recovering from his injuries, Everett was arrested on March 22 at his home in Youngtown. He's been charged with manslaughter.
