LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Louisville Metro police have charged the owner of a car involved in a weekend crash that killed a former University of Louisville cheerleader with murder.

Bradley Allen Caraway, 34, was arrested August 10 and booked into Louisville Metro Corrections.

An investigation by the LMPD traffic unit determined that Caraway was the driver of the car involved in a crash around 2:50 a.m. August 6 on the ramp from Interstate 64 East to the Gene Snyder Freeway (I-265) North. When the car overturned, Shanae Moorman, 25, was ejected from the vehicle and killed.

It was originally believed that Moorman was the only occupant of the 2014 Honda Accord, but a check of the registration revealed that Caraway was the owner. About three hours after the crash, Caraway was found walking on the Snyder near the Taylorsville Road exit by Jeffersontown police. Officers said Caraway appeared to be intoxicated, was wearing no shirt or shoes and had injuries that were consistent with being involved in a traffic crash.

Caraway, who was originally charged with leaving the scene of an accident and failure to maintain insurance, will be arraigned on the murder charge August 11.?
