Police: traffic stop for loud music preceded crash

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Police in Mobile say a driver who led police on a chase and crashed into another car, killing a little girl, was initially pulled over for playing his stereo too loud.

Officers say 36-year-old Marcine Herodi Jackson is charged with a noise ordinance violation as well as murder and assault.

He's also charged with possession of marijuana.

Deputy Chief Jim Barber says the chase ended when Jackson's Buick LeSabre veered into oncoming traffic, broadsiding a Ford Taurus.

A child inside the Taurus, 2-year-old Alaysia Marks, was killed. Her mother, 31-year-old Adrian Marks, was listed in serious condition at the University of South Alabama Medical Center. Police say the child was in a car seat.

They say Jackson sped away as officers approached his car after the stop.
