Roseville High School senior killed in crash has been identified

- The Roseville High School senior who was killed in a fatal car accident Saturday morning has been identified as Julius Jones.

Fraser police said a suspected drunk driver rear-ended a car stopped at a red light Saturday morning, killing one teen and leaving another in critical condition.

Police say the accident occurred approximately 1:40 a.m. Saturday, while the victims' car was stopped at a red light on Groesbeck Highway, just south of 14 Mile Road.

The report indicates a 2004 Buick SUV was traveling at a high rate of speed when it smashed into a 1996 Lincoln Mark VII with four occupants.

Jones, 19,  was pronounced dead on the scene. He was a rear seat passenger. The other rear passenger, a 20 year-old male, is in critical condition.

Authorities said the front seat passenger and driver are in stable condition.

The surviving occupants are all being treated at a local hospital.

Police said the responsible driver was alone and uninjured and will be arraigned in 39th District Court Monday morning. Their investigation has yielded evidence that strongly suggests alcohol was a factor.

The school said grief counselors will be available for students on Monday.
