ABC News has reported that the Georgia teenager who was involved in a car crash while allegedly using the speed filter on Snapchat now faces multiple charges and is at the center of a lawsuit.
An arrest warrant was issued June 2nd by a judge in Clayton County, Ga., for Christal McGee, 19. On September 10, 2015, McGee was attempting to get over 100 mph on Snapchat’s speed filter and failed to notice a car pulling onto the Georgia highway she was speeding on. At around 11:15 p.m., McGee struck a Mitsubishi Outlander at 107 mph on a road with a speed limit of 55.
McGee has been charged with reckless driving, super speeder, driving too fast for conditions and serious injury by vehicle, a felony.
The driver of the Mitsubishi Outlander, Wentworth Maynard, and his family have filed a lawsuit against both McGee and Snapchat, claiming negligence and hardship.
Maynard endured a five-week stay at a hospital and now suffers from permanent brain damage. His lawyer claims he has lost 50 pounds, requires a wheelchair to get around and cannot work to support himself.
