1. Harlie DesArmo was killed in this crash. She was 15.
2. Courtney L. DesArmo was injured. She is 18. According to reports, Courtney had surgery and is improving.
Levi Laney is 22 years old. He also graduated from Castle Rock High School.
Laney hit the sisters as they were walking along the road. He apparently told the police that he simply did not see them.
At the time of posting, Laney had not been charged with any crimes. Police do not believe this was a case of drunk driving or excessive speeding. While that certainly reduces his odds of getting charged, police and prosecutors will look at all the facts and circumstances before making a decision.
