Hearing Jan. 17 For Afton Man Charged In Vehicular Homicide

An 18-year-old man charged with vehicular homicide in connection with an Oct. 22 pickup truck accident that killed his father had a first General Sessions Court appearance on Wednesday.

Quinton A. Britton-Rowell, 18, of Frank Roberts Road, Afton, remains free on bond pending a Jan. 17 preliminary hearing.

Britton-Rowell was driving a pickup truck that crashed on Greystone Road, killing his father, Alex Rowell, and injuring three other passengers.

Britton-Rowell was charged the following week with vehicular homicide.

The pickup truck was westbound about 3:05 a.m. on Oct. 22 in the 4800 block of Greystone Road when it crashed into a tree "and became engulfed in flames," according to a Tennessee Highway Patrol preliminary report.

The report said Britton-Rowell "tried to negotiate a curve (and) the vehicle ran off the right side of the roadway, striking a tree."

Britton-Rowell allegedly committed the felony offense "by recklessly killing Alex M. Rowell as the proximate result of his reckless operation of an automobile and the operation of an automobile while under the influence of alcohol," the THP report said.

Britton-Rowell had been drinking and speed was also "an issue" in the crash, the report said.

Quinton Britton-Rowell recently completed U.S. Marine Corps basic training, and was preparing to be deployed soon.

A THP investigation into the crash continues.
