An eyewitness told police that Flacy’s Porsche passed his pickup truck at speeds “close to 100 miles per hour” according to court records. The witnesses said Flacy swerved to avoid another vehicle and began to lose control of the Porsche.

The witness said the Porsche collided with the Buick. Both then left the roadway and stopped in a ditch, according to court records. The Buick hit a tree after it left the roadway, court records said.

Police talked to Flacy who said he was driving about 80 miles per hour. An analysis by crash investigators estimated the speed of the Porsche to be 119 miles per hour. The speed limit was listed as 65, court records said.

Flacy was arrested on a warrant on September 18. He was able to post bond of $5,000 the next day.
