New charge added in crossing guard death

Clearwater, Florida -- Clearwater police are adding another charge in the death of a crossing guard last week.

Julious Johnson allegedly ran a red light and triggered a violent crash that led to the death of Doug Carey, a former Clearwater police officer who worked as a school crossing guard.

Police say Johnson now faces an additional charge of vehicular homicide. The charge was added after an event data recorder on the Cadillac Johson drove showed he was going approximately 70 mph at the time of the crash. The speed limit on that section of Gulf-to-Bay Blvd. is 40 mph.

Johnson allegedly ran from the scene after the crash, leaving behind his two young daughters who were injured.

He faces nine other charges in addition to vehicular homicide, including leaving the scene of a crash resulting in death, aggravated child neglect, resisting arrest without violence, and felon in possession of a firearm.
