A Minnesota State Trooper with a reported history of driving at excessive speeds has been criminally charged in a crash that killed high school cheerleader Olivia Flores, an 18-year-old just weeks away from graduating when Trooper Shane Roper, 32, driving without lights or sirens, plowed into her vehicle at 83 mph in a 40 mph zone.

Flores died and five others were injured in the May 18 crash, according to a statement from Olmstead County Attorney Mark Ostrem released Tuesday.

Ostrem alleges it was in the moments just before crashing into Flores that Roper pushed the gas to “full throttle” and turned off his lights and sirens.

Roper, 32, is charged with second-degree manslaughter as well as criminal vehicular homicide, reckless driving and five counts of criminal vehicular operation.
