Hours after Bobbi Kristina Brown, 19, was in a near fatal car crash in Alpharetta her ex-fiance/adopted brother, Nick Gordon, 23, was arrested for speeding recklessly in the same city.
According to TMZ, The Houstons: On Our Own star was driving 82 in a 35 miles per hour speed-zone in a high pedestrian area.
“We are fortunate because that’s such a busy corridor with high end retail shopping retaurants and pedestrains at crosswalks,” said law enforcement. “At that speed, it’s absolutely reckless.”
As previously reported by NewsOne, Krissy is lucky to escape her crash unscathed:
“We think speed was a contributing factor,” George Gordon, a spokesman for the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety in Georgia said. “We determined she lost control of the vehicle while going around a curve. Alcohol and drugs were not a factor,” he told the New York Daily News.
Fortunately for Brown, no one else was injured; according to police, the trail where Brown’s vehicle landed on could have had joggers or bikers on it at the time of the accident.
Brown was cited by police for “failure to maintain lane” and has to appear in court.
The grieving daughter thanked her late mother, Whitney Houston, for saving her life.
Hopefully, when it comes to Bobbi Kristina and Nick, we aren’t witnessing history repeat itself as they seem to travel down the same reckless paths as her parents.
Gordon’s court date is set for February 12.
