Jennings man pleads guilty in deadly drunken driving crash

A man has pleaded guilty to driving drunk at speeds of more than 120 mph before causing a deadly crash in St. Louis.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 35-year-old Omar Brown, of Jennings, admitted Monday to involuntary manslaughter in the fiery August 2016 crash that killed 45-year-old James Carrawell. Police say Brown was reported to be speeding and swerving from lane to lane before rear-ending Carrawell’s vehicle, causing it to hit a concrete barrier, overturn and catch fire.

Court records Brown’s blood-alcohol content measured 0.195 percent, more than twice the legal limit to drive a vehicle in Missouri.
