Charges were filed Wednesday in connection to a deadly car crash that killed a mother and her daughter last month in Merchantville.
According to Camden County Prosecutor Warren W. Faulk, 31-year-old Keith Johnson was charged in connection to the accident. Johnson, according to investigators, faces two counts of Death by Auto and one count of Aggravated Assault.
Investigators say the car Johnson was driving was going 25 miles-per-hour over the speed limit when it collided head-on with the car Anada Medina and her daughter, Stephanie Garcia, were in on January 31.
Police say Medina and Garcia were killed in the crash. A passenger who was in Johnson's car is still in the hospital, police said.
Johnson is still being treated for his injuries at Cooper Hospital, but is expected to be taken to the Camden County Jail when he is released.
We set new records across our area this afternoon, even though winter began at 12:11pm. Tonight because of the warm air that will remain in place and the wet ground, fog will be a concern into the late night hours. Most of the rain will stay north and west of Philadelphia overnight. We'll continue to set new records on Sunday out ahead of a cold front with highs reaching into the mid-70s. Then widespread rain will be arriving late in the day.
