18-year-old Charged with Murder after Fatal DUI Crash
A teenager who was driving on a suspended learner’s permit and under the influence of alcohol when he crashed into a utility pole, was charged with murder for killing a passenger in the car. Officers say that not only was Milad Moulayi drinking and driving without a legal license, he was traveling at speeds in access of 100 mph. Milad Moulayi, was 17 years old at the time of the incident and the victim was 16.
The accident occurred in Aug 2008, after Moulayi departed from his home in followup a party. The teen had been drinking excessively but offered to drive his friend, Mackenzie Frazee, home. After taking his Mercedes Benz up to 102-112 mph, Moulayi crossed the center median on Newport Avenue in Tustin and crashed into a utility pole, splitting the car in half. The car caught on fire and firefighters had to use the Jaws of Life to free Frazee. Frazee was pronounced dead at Western medical Center while Moulayi was only treated for cuts and bruises. His blood alcohol level was registered at .11%.
