ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A judge has suspended all driving privileges for the man accused of causing the Halloween crash that killed his baby daughter.
Isaac McCrea, 34, appeared in court with the mother of his children by his side. He pleaded not guilty Monday morning on charges accusing him of causing the crash that killed his infant daughter. The district attorney`s office says McCrea had a 0.14 alcohol level around the time that the incident happened.
“The judge did suspend his license based on the .08 or more blood alcohol content and the fact that he`s being charged with a homicide,” said Prosecutor Raymond Benitez.
McCrea is facing up to 10 counts for the October 31 accident, including felony vehicular manslaughter. He's accused of driving drunk in the fatal car crash that killed his 6-month-old daughter.
State police say McCrea drove off Route 104 in Webster and crossed a service road before crashing into a tree. McCrea told police he was on his way to pick up his wife from work. Two other children were in the car at the time of the accident.
“There are three counts of aggravated DWI which is a Class E felony. That’s actually two counts per child that`s 15 years of age or less that was in that vehicle that night,” said Benitez.
According to prosecutors, the mother of the children has been supportive of McCrea through this process. McCrea could face up to 15 years in prison if convicted. He is due back in court January 8.
