Jonathan Miller Suspect in Drunk Driving Crash that Killed Estella Bowen
Chandler, Arizona—Estella Bowen died when the white mini cooper in which she was a passenger was struck by a suspected drunk red-light runner. The accident occurred Sunday afternoon Nov. 29th at the intersection of Dobson and Queen Creek Roads.
Court records show that Jonathan George Miller, age 26, was driving on a revoked or suspended license when his GMC pick-up truck ran a red light. He reportedly has been on probation since March of this year, when he was convicted of a previous DUI.
The impact of the crash sent Ms. Bowen from the front passenger seat to the rear of the car. She suffered a head injury and was rushed to Chandler Medical Regional Center, but doctors were unable to save her.
Others injured in the crash include the 16-year old driver of the mini cooper in which Ms. Bowen was riding, and a couple in a third vehicle involved in the crash.
When officers arrived, Miller was sitting on a curb about 150 yards from the scene. He was arrested and booked into jail on charges of manslaughter and three counts of endangerment.
We extend our condolences to Ms. Bowen’s family and friends over this tragic loss.
