New Mother Rayleen White Killed after DUI Driver Sidney Kelley Crashes into Tree

 
CHOWCHILLA, CA (May 10, 2019)– A teenage mother has died and a 20-year-old woman faces vehicular manslaughter charges after a crash Wednesday night.
 
Rayleen White, 17, was a passenger in a car driven by Sidney Kelley of Oakland. Kelley is in the hospital with serious injuries but was arrested on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter, felony evading causing a fatal injury, felony DUI and driving unlicensed.
 
California Highway Patrol officers said Wednesday night around 9:00 p.m. officers observed a car going 25 miles per hour on State Road 99. They suspected the driver, Kelley, was under the influence of drugs.
 
Officers tried to pull the car over, but instead Kelley took off, exiting on Robertson Boulevard. After that, Kelley crashed into a car at the intersection and lead officers on a chase through Chowchilla. Officers said at one point, they hit 105 miles per hour and crashed into a palm tree on Highway 233 near Avenue 23 1/2.
 
White was thrown into the back seat, suffered major injuries. She was pronounced dead at the scene before the ambulance arrived.
 
CHP officers said both young women were not wearing their seatbelts.
