A teen involved in a fatal car crash is facing serious charges.

On March 3, a two-car crash on Latham Road claimed the life of Jill Clankie. Nineteen-year-old Ryan Moberg is now being charged with reckless homicide in the case.

The Winnebago County Sheriff's Office says that Moberg was traveling at a high rate of speed on Old River Road and failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of Latham. Moberg's vehicle then struck the driver's side of Clankie's car.

Several witnesses also reported that Moberg and another unidentified vehicle were seen "drag racing". After the crash, witnesses say the other vehicle fled.
