Twenty-seven-year-old Haley Parkman of McKinney, Texas was driving with a suspended license when she allegedly rear-ended a car while drunk, killing 28-year-old Kamren Morgan, according to the Dallas News.
Parkman (pictured on the left) turned herself into authorities last week on charges of intoxication manslaughter and failure to stop and render aid after her Chevy Silverado plowed into Morgan’s Chevy Impala around 1 a.m. on April 8, on the Dallas North Tollway.
Video allegedly shows Parkman getting out of her car after the impact, looking inside the Impala, and then returning to her vehicle and driving away.
The warrant for Parkman stated that she “stood around for a moment as traffic passed, then got back in the truck, reversed to separate the two vehicles, and then drove past the crash scene” reported Dallas News.
Parkman’s truck stalled out after shortly after she drove past Morgan’s car, however, Parkman failed to render aid to the woman at that time or call for help. When authorities arrived, Parkman was in her incapacitated vehicle and Morgan was pronounced dead at the scene.
Parkman was transported to a local hospital where a trooper interviewed her and noted her breath smelled of alcohol, and her eyes were watery and red. The Dallas News reported she told the officer she had been drinking at a basketball game before the deadly crash.
Investigators later determined that Kamren Morgan had missed her exit and was stopped in the far right lane when Parkman crashed into her. Morgan was a medical assistant at the Dallas Center for Sleep Disorders.
Parkman was previously arrested on DWI charged in 2010 while a student at Texas Tech, according to RedRaiders.com. It is unclear whether her current suspended license is due to that arrest.
