Raleigh police said that a man from Knightdale is faced with new charges in connection to an April 14 crash in which a retired Wake County school teacher suffered fatal personal injuries.
On April 19, 24-year-old Lauren Everett-Justin Avery surrendered to police on a misdemeanor charge of death by motor vehicle, according to police spokesman Jim Sughrue.
According to police, Avery ran a red light on Capital Boulevard at Brentwood Road and collided with a car driven by 63-year-old Raleigh resident Wade Judson Harward Jr. Harward was taken to WakeMed, where he was later pronounced dead.
Police initially charged Avery with a red light violation.
