The Ohio Highway Patrol says a Bloom-Carroll high school student charged in the traffic-crash death of her classmate was driving more than 90 miles-per-hour when the accident happened last month. 

16-year-old Katie Jumper faces multiple delinquency counts in the March death of 15-year-old Leah Jackson. Troopers say excessive speed caused Jumper to veer off of Plum Road near Havensport Road and hit a tree. Troopers say drugs and alcohol were not factors in the crash.
