On Thursday, May 29, drunk driver Thabiti Pierre-Louis was speeding down the road with 5 passengers and lost control of the vehicle. The car then veered off the road, struck a pole, and flipped, killing a 4-month-old infant Londyn Johnson.
The infant was ejected from the car on impact, and when the car flipped, she was crushed beneath it.
The baby’s mother, Kayla Davis, also a passenger in the vehicle, had stowed the baby’s car seat in the trunk and held the baby on her lap when there was not enough room for all of the adult passengers to fit in the vehicle.
Five of those in the car, including Pierre-Louis, were taking to Carolinas Medical Center prior to the crash. When he was released, Pierre-Louis was taken to the Mecklenburg County Jail, and is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday.
Thabiti Pierre-Louis is currently being charged with felony death by vehicle, reckless driving, contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile, and possession of marijuana. The mother of the infant has been charged with felony child abuse causing serious injury.
