An Elton teenager has been charged with vehicular homicide after a May accident that claimed the life of another teenager.

According to a news release from Louisiana State Police, Troop D, a toxicology sample taken from 18-year-old Kennedy Renee Isaac indicated that she was intoxicated at the time of the crash.
