Speeding Crash Claims Life of Toddler

download (80)An accident has claimed the life of a three year old boy in West Charlotte early Sunday.

According to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police, Chantee Boyd, 26, was driving with her two sons on Billy Graham Parkway toward Morris Field Drive when she lost control of her 1996 Honda Accord when it veered off of the left side of the road and into the median. Boyd’s vehicle entered into a counterclockwise spin, slammed into a guardrail on the median and then continued into the northbound lanes of the parkway. 

Investigators say that the rear end of Boyd’s vehicle struck a Lincoln Continental that was being driven by William Dublin head on. Boyd’s car ended up on the right shoulder of the northbound lanes.

Boyd’s 3-year-old son died at the scene of the accident while her 7-year-old son was transported to Carolinas Medical Center-Main. The 7-year-old is currently listed with serious injuries.

Both Boyd and Dublin were also transported to Carolinas Medical Center-Main with minor injuries.

Police say that both alcohol and speed played a role in the fatal crash.

After being treated for her injuries, Boyd was arrested. She is currently facing charges of felony death by vehicle, felony serious injury, and two counts of felony child abuse, reckless driving and driving while impaired. Boyd is currently being held on a $500,000 bond.
