Charges filed in deadly Bucks Co. crash

DOYLESTOWN, Pa. -

Prosecutors say a Bucks County man was driving his muscle car more than 140 mph when it rear-ended another vehicle, killing a 9-year-old girl.

Now 37-year-old Drew Bodden faces third-degree murder, homicide by vehicle and related charges in the crash that killed Holly Huynh in Doylestown on the night before Thanksgiving.

Huynh's grandmother remains hospitalized after police say Bodden rammed into the back of her Honda CRV. The fourth-grade Huynh was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities say Bodden's modified Mustang was going between 142 and 154 mph. Investigators say the car's speedometer was stuck just below 160 mph when they examined the wreckage.

Bodden turned himself in to face charges Thursday. A message left for his attorney wasn't immediately returned.
