Man Wanted in Fatal Crash Arrested in California

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) –  St. Louis police have reached halfway across the country to make an arrest in a fatal crash that occurred last July.

Aaron Herring, now 21, was at the wheel of an SUV that ran a stop sign and slammed into another SUV at January and Holly Hills on July 5, 2010.

Herring’s vehicle then crashed into several parked cars, throwing his passenger out.

That passenger, 21-year-old Ashley Brenner of St. Louis, later died of her injuries.

During the course of their investigation, police learned that Herring and Brenner had been arguing at the time, and Herring reportedly told investigators that he was so upset with Brenner that he intentionally ran the stop sign, touching off the crash.

Herring was arrested last week in Marysville California and has been extradited back to St. Louis to face charges of Involuntary Manslaughter.

    Arron loved Ashley very much, they were together for 5 years and he would of NEVER intentionally hurt her! Also, another moving vehicle was involved and that person ran their stop sign as well and clipped Arron’s vehicle, which made him lose control. Another thing that they failed to mention is that after she was ejected Arron rushed to her side and was holding her and giving her CPR to try to save her life. And that is how the police found them when they first arrived to the scene. This boy is a very caring and loving person. Arron is currently active duty member of the United States Air Force. He misses Ashley very much and is punished enough by losing the love of his life.
