Man guilty in crash that killed girl, 9

DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A man has been found guilty of third-degree murder in a suburban Philadelphia crash that killed a 9-year-old girl and paralyzed her grandmother in November.

After two days of testimony, a Bucks County judge today announced the verdict against 38-year-old Drew Bodden of Plumstead.

Prosecutors allege that Bodden was racing another car at between 142 mph and 155 mph when his modified Mustang Cobra rear-ended an SUV on Pa. Route 611 in Doylestown on Nov. 21, pushing the bumper inside the car and killing fourth-grader Holly Huynh in the back seat.

Her grandmother, Suzanne Berry, suffered massive injuries and was left paralyzed.

Bodden faces a maximum 40 years behind bars, although the guidelines call for six to 20 years.
