Fatal car crash doesn't produce murder charges

Murder was not listed among the charges against the driver of a vehicle involved in a car crash that resulted in the death of 63-year-old Brenda Montgomery when they were filed last week in Floyd County District Court.

James E. Mace, 22, was the driver of the 2000 Chevrolet Malibu that crashed into Montgomery and her passenger, Elsie Oakley, on May 15. Montgomery was transported to Highlands Regional Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead by Floyd County Coroner Greg Nelson.

Assistant County Attorney Tyler Green said Kentucky State Police is still investigating the crash, and has not given his office any indication about if or when more charges may be forthcoming.
