On the 23rd of October, Logan T Krogman was driving around in his father’s car. It is alleged that this 15 year-old was joyriding at excessive speeds when he crashed into a house in a neighborhood in Aurora. It was around 1:40 in the morning when the crash occurred. The crash resulted in the death of his classmate at Metea Valley High School, Devin Meadows.
The local police said that Logan took his father’s 2012 Chevy Malibu without permission from his house near the 800 block of Amli Court. While he was driving on the road slick from rain, he lost control of the vehicle. He was driving at such an excessive speed that they are claiming that this car hit a curb and was airborne when it crashed into a garage. The crash catapulted Meadows out of the front window and injured two other teenage boys.
Although Logan was 15 at the time of the car accident, the court has decided to treat him as an adult. He was charged with a two count indictment of reckless homicide and aggravated reckless driving. On December 3rd, Logan and his lawyers stepped to the bench to enter a not guilty plea. State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin retorted that "At 15 years old, Logan Krogman had no business being behind the wheel of a car. This is a senseless tragedy that did not have to happen."
