    Teenager Killed After Gas Drive-off in Ames





    A Nevada teenager was killed early Saturday when the car he was in smashed into a sport utility vehicle while fleeing the scene of a gasoline theft, police said.
    The youth who died was identified as Brice Nelson, 16. Ames police said he was a passenger in a Firebird that left a Kum & Go store about 1 a.m. without paying for $52.62 worth of gas. Officials said that shortly after the theft was reported, a police officer saw the car driving east on Lincoln Way. The officer turned on his emergency lights and tried to pull the car over, but it sped off, reaching speeds of more than 90 mph. The officer decreased his speed and followed the car at a distance, officials said. The Firebird continued speeding east to Lincoln Wayís intersection with Duff Avenue, where the car smashed into a Toyota 4Runner truck.
    Nelson was pronounced dead at the scene. The Firebirdís driver was identified as Kaleb Hoversten, 18, of Ames. He was treated for minor injuries at Mary Greeley Medical Center, then arrested on charges of vehicular homicide, driving on a suspended license, and theft. A second passenger in the car, Tori Page, 14, of Nevada, was taken to Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines. She was listed in critical condition later this morning. Police said the driver of the truck, William Schroeder, 38, of Ames, was taken to Iowa Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines. No information was available about his condition.

    Stick the driver in prison for the rest of his life. Already killed 1 person, damn near killed 2 others, not including himself.

    Expect these types of incidents to become more common as gas prices continue to increase. Especially amongst younger drivers.

    Throw the book at him. Pick it up, and throw it at him again. I don't want to see dudes like this on the street when I'm driving around Lincoln Way.

    Off topic, but my question is: What was a 14 year old girl doing in that car at 1am Saturday morning? Shouldn't a 14 year old have a curfew? I mean, that's basically a JR High girl in the car with an 18 year old.

    Must have been out looking for the "Parents of the Year" award to bring home.

    I think some jurisdictions have passed prepay laws. I would expect those type of laws to become more prevalent as well.

    I probably wouldn't go that far. This is an 18 year old kid who made a really, really stupid mistake. But, it wasn't premeditated murder. He's going to learn a costly lesson and will have to live with it the rest of his life...not that it makes up for the loss. Prison? Sure. Rest of his life? That's a little extreme for something that is for the most part a traffic accident and not premeditated. Just IMO.

    Yeah, life in prison would probably be excessive, however, I hope he gets the maximum penalty for vehicular homicide.

    In prison, he may learn what it is like to get "rear ended."

    Class B felony in Iowa. Up to 25 years for the death of the passenger alone. Don't know how much more would be tacked on for suspended license and theft.

    There are still gas stations that allow you to pump before paying? Especially at night?
