CHARLOTTE, N.C. — An athletic Myers Park High School senior is in the Mecklenburg county jail Monday night, WSOC reported.

Abigail McGaha plays lacrosse according to online records and her Facebook profile. Peers leaving school Monday afternoon were shocked to hear the 17-year-old was charged with involuntary manslaughter and reckless driving.

“I think that’s pretty surprising,” said Hampton McGrath, a sophomore at the school.

“I don’t necessarily think she should be charged if it was an accident while she was speeding but she’s got to go [to jail] because she killed somebody else. It was her fault for speeding,” Myers Park senior Tira Meggett said.
