According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau, the most commonly stolen vehicle in 2012 was the 1994 Honda Accord.
The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) in Des Plaines, Ill. recently released its annual “Hot Wheels” list of the most frequently stolen cars in the U.S., and the humble 1994 Honda Accord model beats all comers for thefts recorded during the 2011 calendar year, followed closely by the 1998 Honda Civic.
“According to a news release from police in Eufaula, Alabama,
35-year-old Karen C. Frost was driving her 1994 Honda Accord on the
evening of April 28. At some point, investigators said, the Accord
crossed over a median and struck another vehicle.
There were six occupants in Frost’s vehicle, including her daughter,
Malaya Peterson, who suffered critical injuries and was pronounced dead
at a nearby hospital.
Authorities have been investigating the cause of the crash since April.
“The subsequent investigation and forensic analysis revealed evidence
that led investigators to obtain a warrant for [Frost’s] arrest,”
Eufaula Police Chief Steve Watkins said in a statement. “The case will
be presented to the Barbour County Grand Jury.”
Frost was taken into custody on Tuesday and charged with murder, as
well as driving under the influence of a controlled substance. She is
being held without bond.
Court records do not list a defense attorney for Frost and it was not immediately clear if she has entered a plea.”
