Second day of Hite trial concludes

May 31, 2012

The trial of Dale Hite, of Plymouth, began yesterday in Starke County Circuit Court, with Judge Kim Hall presiding.
Hite is on trial for an incident that happened Oct. 16, 2009, when the car he was allegedly driving crashed into some trees traveling 124 mph.
According to court documents, police were at a Grovertown residence investigating the possibility of someone manufacturing methamphetamine. While looking for evidence, a car approached the home and then sped away.
The driver of the vehicle shut the lights off when law enforcement officials began to follow the car.
Two passengers were thrown from the car: Nicholas White and Amber McMillen, both of Plymouth. The victims died at the scene from injuries sustained in the crash.
Hite had to be airlifted from the crash site.
Hite claims he was not driving at the time the accident occurred. However, reports say evidence collected at the scene indicates he was the driver.
Hite has been charged with eight counts of criminal behavior: Two counts of resisting law enforcement resulting in death, Class B Felonies; two counts reckless homicide, Class C felonies; resisting law enforcement, Class D Felony; possession of methamphetamine, Class D Felony; failure to stop at a stop sign. Class C Infraction; failure to use headlights from sunset to sunrise, Class C Infraction.
Hite's trial will continue at 9 a.m. tomorrow in the Starke County Circuit Court.
