A Dallas man who struck and killed a Granbury woman outside the Spearmint Rhino in Dallas in the early morning hours of March 17 has been indicted.
Eric Brent Crutchfield, 27, was behind the wheel of a 2003 For F-250 that was pulling out of its parking space when it ran over Kasey McKenzie, 23, walking out of the club with some friends after a party. She died at the scene.
Crutchfield was arrested on suspicion of intoxication manslaughter and his alcohol level was revealed to be twice the legal limit.
The Dallas Morning News reports that Crutchfield was indicted sometime in April on a second-degree felony manslaughter charge. (The story is behind a paywall, so you have to be a subscriber to the DMN to see the full story.)
This is not the same charge for which he was arrested but the Dallas Morning News report stated that it carries the same level of punishment.
Since the McKenzie's death, her family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit claiming that the club was negligent in serving Crutchfield too much alcohol. Crutchfield is also named as a defendent in the suit.
