Tatum Man Accused Of Killing Four Teenagers While Racing Goes On Trial

Its taken nearly two years for the trial of David Reid to start in Rusk County.

 Reid was 18 when he crashed into a car with four teenage girls inside, including his own sister. Reid was charged with racing and manslaughter.

On the stand much of the day today was D.P.S. Trooper Toby White.

White testified Reid was going 99 miles an hour at the time of the crash.  He said tests could not determine if Reid's lights were on or off at the time of the accident  White also testified that Jaicey Robberson, who was driving the car the girls were in,  did not yield right of way. White did testify Reid was 85 to 90 percent responsible for the accident.

Reid's defense attorney said it was possible Reid may take the stand before the trial ends.
