A 14-year-old boy in Houston who was driving an SUV that caused a fatal vehicle accident has been arrested on a murder charge, authorities say.

Houston police said a four-wheel drive the teenager was driving was filled with teenagers who were throwing eggs at other cars on Tuesday afternoon when another driver began chasing them and allegedly displaying a semi-automatic handgun.

The suspects told police that another driver flashed a firearm at them near an intersection after his Lincon sedan was hit in the egging spree.

White McDonald's customer charged with attacking black female employee
Records from the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office show that Taylor is now held in the Pinellas County Jail on a $1,000 bond. After the assault, it appears Taylor is still allowed to place his order, even after he clearly attacked an employee.

The truck's driver, identified as 45-year-old Silvia Zavala, was found dead at the scene by paramedics.

The 14-year-old, who suffered a broken ankle in the crash, was arrested and charged with murder; he's been booked into a juvenile detention center.

"The driver of the vehicle that was chasing him has been identified & efforts are being made to interview him", Gonzalez tweeted. That auto was an older model gold or yellow Lincoln, with a white top and elbow rims, Gonzalez said.

Gonzalez called Zavala "totally innocent", adding that she "had just gone shopping based on some debris strewn at scene".
