VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — The driver in a deadly crash in Virginia Beach is now facing an involuntary manslaughter charge.
Police originally charged 18-year-old Austin Foley with reckless driving and other traffic offenses in connection to the crash last month.
Seven-teen-year-old Nikita de Groot died in the crash on South Parliament Drive.
Foley and another passenger both hospitaized with serious injuries following the crash.
None of them were wearing seatbelts — and police said speed was considered a factor in the crash.
Court records show Foley was released on a $5,000 bond on Tuesday, July 30. He will have to undergo drug and alcohol testing, and he cannot drive.
Foley’s next court date is Sept. 20.
