Jury indicts teen in fatal Bramblett crash


LEE COUNTY, Ala. (WRBL) — A Lee County grand jury has indicted the Auburn teen charged in connection with the death of Rod and Paula Bramblett in a car crash.

16-year-old Johnston Taylor has been indicted on two counts of manslaughter-reckless by a grand jury.

Rod and Paula Bramblett were killed in the crash back on May 25, 2019.

Investigators said Taylor was driving around 90 miles per hour when he hit the Brambletts’ car.

A toxicology analysis report from the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences found that Taylor had marijuana in his blood. In the days following the crash, hundreds attended a service in the Brambletts’ memory at the Auburn Arena.

The beloved Voice of The Auburn Tigers and his high school sweetheart were both graduates of Auburn University.
