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.  

Shelby Christine Granger, 18, a passenger in the vehicle Isaac was driving, died in the crash.

Isaac and another passenger were critically injured.

Troopers said Isaac's blood alcohol content at the time of the crash was .05 percent.  

The legal limit for drivers under the age of 21 in Louisiana is .02 percent.  

Troopers said a warrant was issued for Isaac's arrest and she was given the opportunity to turn herself in. Isaac reportedly turned herself in to authorities on Friday.

Isaac has been booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center on charges of vehicular homicide, first-degree vehicular negligent injuring, failure to stop at a stop sign, and failure to wear a seatbelt.  

Bond was set at $25,000.

Troopers said if convicted, Isaac faces up to 35 years in prison and a fine of up to $18,025.
