JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) -- A police affidavit states a man accused of fleeing after his truck struck horses killing a young rider stopped, looked back and then removed the license plate from his pickup before driving away.
Richard Allen White was arraigned Monday in Madison County General Sessions Court on several charges, including reckless vehicular homicide. The affidavit states the 28-year-old White told deputies who found him hiding under his house on Wednesday that he didn't have insurance on his truck, according to The Jackson Sun.
Amber Kendrick was thrown from a horse she was riding with a family friend on May 31 and struck her head on the pavement. The two young men she was riding with had minor injuries. Both horses died.
White's attorney entered a not guilty plea for his client.
