OGDEN — A man previously convicted of DUI was charged Tuesday with causing the death of a female passenger after police say he crashed while driving intoxicated.

Zachary Mark Wall, 25, of Ogden, was charged in 2nd District Court with automobile homicide, a second-degree felony; DUI with two or more convictions in the past 10 years, a third-degree felony; and being an alcohol-restricted driver, a class B misdemeanor.

On Saturday at about 1:10 a.m., Wall was driving at a high rate of speed in the 2300 block of Madison Avenue, according to charging documents.

“The vehicle drifted right, hopping the east (curb) and vaulting the car into a power pole,” the charges state.

After shearing the pole, Wall’s vehicle then hit a tree “with enough force to push the engine compartment back to the dashboard,” according to charging documents.

Curiea Thorton, 31, who was in the front passenger seat and not wearing a seat belt, was killed on impact, the charges state.

Wall sustained multiple injuries, including “a traumatic brain injury, broken ribs, broken left arm, dislocated hip and a laceration to his left knee,” the charges state.

Witnesses later told police that Wall had been “drinking heavily and he was intoxicated when he left in his vehicle,” according to charging documents.

Witnesses said when Wall left them, he was alone in his car. At the hospital, the charges state Wall was not cooperative with authorities in helping to identify Thorton, who was later identified by another officer.

A warrant was issued Tuesday for Wall’s arrest to ensure he is booked into jail once he is released from the hospital.
