(April 7, 2021) This afternoon, Frisco Police arrested 19-year old Jaden Walker and 19-year old Jade Walker -- who are siblings and both of Frisco, Texas -- on two counts of Manslaughter. These subjects were operating vehicles involved in a multiple fatality crash on March 27, 2021 at the intersection of FM 423 and Del Webb Blvd.
After Frisco Police Accident Investigators responded to the scene and conducted a thorough investigation of the crash, it is believed that Jaden Walker and Jade Walker were traveling at speeds in excess of 100mph and 90mph, respectively, prior to striking the Lexus SUV, killing both of its occupants. The victims were identified as 76-year old Jacquelyn Buhler and 79-year old Clarence Buhler of Frisco, Texas. This is an ongoing investigation.
The offense of Manslaughter, which is a Felony of the second degree, carries a term of confinement from two to 20 years, and a fine of up to $10,000.
This incident, follows the fatality crash involving a juvenile driver in 2020 (CFS 20021358) traveling at speeds over 80 mph, further reinforces that excess speeding is a detriment to our community.
“The deaths of Jacquelyn Buhler, Clarence Buhler, Divya Avula, Raja Gavini and Premnath Ramanatham were the result of criminal driving behavior involving speeds of over 80, 90 and 100 miles per hour by the suspects”, said Frisco Chief of Police David Shilson. “These cases highlight the dangers that racing and excessive speeds pose to our community. As a department, we will continue to commit resources to ensuring the safety of motorists and to help prevent another family from having to mourn a loss of a loved one. I want to encourage motorists and residents if they observe this type of driving behavior to call us so that we can respond and take enforcement action if possible.”
