The identity of the teenager drive allegedly responsible for the fatal vehicle accident that claimed the life of Arizona-born hip-hop star Carnegie (a.k.a. Abay Lattin) has surfaced in the local media.
According a story posted on KPHO's website, the 17-year-old driver is identified as Kathryn Elizabeth Hetrick of Gilbert.
Tempe Police Department officials also stated earlier today that Hetrick will be charged with one count of manslaughter and two counts of aggravated assault as result of the accident. As we reported earlier, she is suspected of being under the influence at the time of the crash, which occurred at around 3 a.m. on Saturday morning when her Ford Expedition slammed into a vehicle carrying Lattin.
