Parents facing charges after rollover crash kills teenager

Authorities say a 14-year-old girl died in a rollover crash after an argument between her father and stepmother escalated into throwing punches as they drove the teen to school.

KTVB-TV reports that police arrested 46-year-old James Barnes and 25-year-old Jordan Jamison on Tuesday.

They are each facing charges of felony injury to a child and misdemeanor domestic violence stemming from the March 31 crash that killed Autumn Barnes.

Police say Jamison lost control of the sport-utility vehicle, which rolled and landed on its roof. Court records say Jamison had methamphetamine in her system at the time.

Officials say Autumn Barnes wasn’t wearing a seatbelt and was thrown from the vehicle. She died at the scene.

Court records show Barnes and Jamison filed for divorce after the crash.
