A woman who crashed her car into a Memphis house has been charged with vehicular homicide in the death of a former college and pro basketball player found dead in the home back in 2021.
Miracle Rutherford, 19, has been indicted on vehicular homicide charges in the death of former basketball player Galen Young. Per Nick Papadimas of ABC24 Memphis, a grand jury said that Rutherford was driving recklessly and “created a substantial risk of death or serious bodily injury.”
“Investigators said the crash happened around 2:45 a.m. on June 5, 2021, as Miracle Rutherford was speeding southbound on Horn Lake Road towards Shelby Drive in southwest Memphis.
“Rutherford’s car crossed two northbound lanes, left the road, continued through a yard, and went airborne, striking the corner of a frame house in the 4500 block of Horn Lake.”
Investigators believed Rutherford was driving over 60 mph in a 45 mph area.
Rutherford is currently free on a $30,000 bond.
Young averaged 14.7 points and 7.2 rebounds in his final season at Charlotte and then became a second-round NBA Draft pick by the San Antonio Spurs. However, he never played in the league but played for several years overseas.
He embarked on a professional basketball career that lasted from 1999-to 2012 with stops in Japan, Venezuela, Spain, Australia, the Philippines, New Zealand, and the United States.
