Police said Sgt. Randolph Price, who was drunk, was speeding when he lost control and flipped his car, killing rookie Officer Bianca Bennett

By PoliceOne Staff

NEW YORK — An NYPD sergeant has been charged with manslaughter and drunk driving after flipping his car in a fiery crash that killed his rookie officer passenger, authorities said.

The New York Daily News reports that on Feb. 1, 2017, Sgt. Randolph Price, 33, and rookie Officer Bianca Bennett, 27, were on their way home from the shooting range when Price, who was speeding, lost control of his Dodge Charger, hit a tree stump and flipped over, sparking a fire. Bennett died when flames engulfed the vehicle.

Authorities said Price’s blood alcohol content was .12, well over the legal limit of .08.

Price was indicted for vehicular manslaughter and drunk driving on Wednesday. He pleaded not guilty and was released on $100,000 bail.

Bennett was on the force for 10 months before her death. Her relative said she was two months away from marrying her fiance.

“A young officer who was his passenger died at the scene, her promising life cut short,” Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clarke said. “This tragedy is all the more senseless because it was avoidable.”
