Teen Driver Allegedly On Snapchat When She Struck And Killed Bicyclist Near Belle Plaine

Failure to call 911 for a resident has figured in a South Florida facility’s fine.

A teenage driver who hit and killed a bicyclist near Belle Plaine this past summer has been charged with felony criminal vehicular homicide and gross misdemeanor reckless driving.

Paige Elizabeth Narveson, 16, of Belle Plaine was charged in Le Sueur County juvenile court last week.

Narveson struck Phillip Ilg, 56, of New Prague, on Highway 25 in rural Le Sueur County, he died at the scene.

The Minnesota State Patrols investigation confirmed a witness account that Ilg was hit while riding on the gravel shoulder and Narveson swerved off the road and struck him.

Narveson told authorities she was looking down for directions when she struck the man. But her cell phone data showed that she was on Snapchat. She was sending and receiving several messages at the time of the crash.
