Noah Galle, 18, Arrested For Killing Of 6 People While Driving 151 MPH, Bragged About Speeding On TikTok
A Florida teenager has been charged with the deaths of six people in a violent crash on Jan. 27 in Delray Beach, Florida. According to the sheriff’s report, it was revealed that Noah Thomas Galle, 18, admitted to police that he was speeding at 151 m.p.h. in his BMW on social media.
Court documents revealed that the occupants of the Nissan Rogue were leaving Pero Family Farms, where they worked. Galle’s vehicle crushed the rear of the Nissan “forward several feet into the passenger compartment.” Due to the blow, the Nissan rotated into the center median and started “flipping and rolling over before coming to a final rest (upside down) within the center median.”
The victims were identified as Mirlaine Innocent Julceus, 45, Remize Michel, 53, Marie Michelle Louis, 60, Michel Louis Saint, 77, Filaine Dieu, 46, and Vanice Percina, 29.
The day after the collision, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office received information that Galle had shared on his Instagram and TikTok several videos and photos of him “driving at extremely high rates of speed” and then would ask people to guess the rate for $25 on cash app.
A search warrant for the social media accounts led investigators to find what appeared to be that same video, showing Galle driving at high speed on I-95.
Galle made his first court appearance Tuesday since his arrest and was charged at $300,000, $50,000 for each crash victim, and he was placed on house arrest. Galle was also not permitted to have any contact with the family members of the victims.
Palm Beach County Juvenile Court Judge Cymonie Rowe ordered Galle to stay in juvenile detention while waiting for his case to be transferred to an adult criminal court.
Few of the victim’s family members spoke on behalf of their loved ones and how this loss has affected them.
Lyndie Louis spoke to the judge about her mother’s passing, Marie Michelle Louis.
“This has been a very, very hard situation for my whole family, my sister and I, and my daughter,” said Louis. “She’s 8. Every time she comes home, she’s been asking, ‘Why can’t grandma come back, Mom?’ My mom was a very loving and devoted woman. I think that the defendant should be in jail and not at home. We can’t see our families now, and why should he? This was a very reckless crime and not just for my mom — everybody’s lives. We need justice.”
One of Galle’s attorneys, Liz Parker, revealed that since the accident, the teenager has had suicidal tendencies and needs to be under supervision at his home. Parker also said that Galle has been on psychiatric medication since he was 12.
“Additionally, since the night of the accident, Your Honor, he’s had a very difficult time dealing with the tragedy and he’s been seeing a psychiatrist,” Parker said.
Due to the boy’s “unusual medical conditions,” his defense believes it contributed to the accident, but she didn’t elaborate on them.
