(FixThisNation.com) – The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department reported that last week, 22-year-old Fraser Bohm had lost control of his vehicle while going at over 100 mph in Malibu killing four sorority sisters from Pepperdine University.
While driving on the Pacific Coast Highway Bohm had lost control of his BMW which resulted in the deaths of Deslyn Williams, Niamh Rolston, Asha Weir, and Peyton Stewart, on Tuesday. On Wednesday the young man pleaded not guilty to all four counts of malice murder and vehicular manslaughter, one for each of the four girls who were killed.
The prosecutor alleged that Bohm had been going 104 mph in a 45 mph zone in a part of the freeway that has been dubbed the “Dead Man’s Curve” because of the multiple fatal accidents that have occurred in that section of the road.
Allegedly Bohm had admitted to texting and driving during an interview with detectives following the accident.
Prosecutor Nathan Bartos stated that Bohm had been aware of the high number of businesses and homes in the area and that he had disregarded the risk of speeding down the road at a speed that was more than two times higher than the speed limit.
Michael Kraut, Bohm’s lawyer, stated that his client had been at a stop sign texting when another driver started to yell at him. In order to avoid him, Bohm proceeded to escalate which ultimately resulted in him losing control of the vehicle. Kraut has also claimed to have identified the driver but that investigators were not interested in getting all of the facts of the case.
Kraut also claimed that at the time of impact, Kraut had only been going 70 mph and that he had no traffic violations, nor was he under the influence while driving.
