Jamie Allen Longwell : $640,000 bond for man charged with vehicular homicide

PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. - Jamie Allen Longwell faced a judge for the first time since being charged with multiple counts of vehicular homicide.

A probable cause affidavit says that on March 30, the 40-year-old hit a car in a side-swipe style crash on Forest Hill Boulevard before leaving the scene of the accident.  Witnesses claim Longwell was driving 80 miles per hour in a 45 mile per hour zone.

About 1.3 miles west of where the hit and run occurred, the report states that Mr. Longwell lost control of his car while going around a curve.  The car rotated, crossed two lanes of traffic, going over a curb and slamming into a concrete wall next to a mobile home park.  Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office deputies say, the car also hit a wooden utility pole before it came to rest upside down.  It is believe the car was traveling 73 to 75 miles per hour.

None of the occupants of the car were wearing seatbelts.  They were all ejected from the car.  Longwell and one passenger were able to get up and walk away, but 21-year-old Roxann Denise Kelleher died from injuries sustained in the crash.

No alcohol was discovered in Longwell's system.  The report states that he had received and placed telephone calls and also received a text message around the time the accident occurred.

At the time of the crash, Longwell's driver's license was under one cancelation and three suspensions.  The report states that he had four previous convictions for driving with a suspended license. 

Longwell is also facing charges from a case in January.  A probably cause affidavit from PBSO states that he unlawfully sold, manufactured or delivered Oxycodone.  The report states that he may have conspired to sell the drugs with Roxann Kelleher, the woman who perished in the crash.

Longwell will face a total of $640,000 in bond for all of the charges.
