EDMOND, Okla. – More information has been released about the tragic motorcycle accident in Edmond that left one teenager dead.

According to police reports, 64-year-old Jin Young Kim was driving westbound on 2nd street in Edmond when he attempted to make an unsafe left turn, which caused a motorcycle to crash into his car.

16-year-old Lorean Ingram was thrown from the motorcycle and into the street where another car struck and killed her.

Police say Ingram was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

After the accident, Kim told officers he was attempting to turn into a private driveway so that he could turn around.  He says he did not see or hear the motorcycle.

According to police reports, a girl with a learners permit was driving the vehicle that struck Ingram in the street.  She did not have a licensed driver in the car with her.

Police say there was nothing the girl could have done to avoid running over Ingram.

Jennifer Monroe with the Edmond Police Department says the case has been presented to the District Attorney’s Office.

The DA is reportedly reviewing one count of Misdemeanor Negligent Homicide against Kim.

However, as of today, there have not been any formal charges filed against him.
