Teen dies of injuries sustained in Charlotte crash

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A Charlotte man is facing charges after the driver of another vehicle passed away from injuries sustained in a car crash in early-June.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police arrested and charged 52-year-old Brooks Morrison on Monday with involuntary manslaughter, driving while license revoked and reckless driving in connection with a crash on June 10.

Just before 10 p.m. on Wednesday, June 10, police say Morrison, driving his 1995 Ford Econoline van down Parkwood Avenue, applied his brakes too late at a red light and skidded into the intersection of North Davidson Street, where he struck a Yamaha moped driven by 17-year-old Oscar Berode.

Berode was thrown from the moped in the crash.

Monday morning just before 8, Berode succumbed to injuries he sustained in the crash.

Morrison's driver's license is currently revoked for failure to appear in court, police say.
