A teenager from Tennessee faces DUI manslaughter charges following a crash that killed a fellow spring breaker in Panama City Beach.
 
Authorities say the crash happened Sunday night when a car driven by 18-year-old Bruce George of Nolensville, Tenn., drove head-on into a scoot car driven by 22-year-old Brandon Beverly of Knoxville, Tenn.
 
The News Herald of Panama City Beach reports Beverly was ejected from the car. He was taken to a hospital where he later died.
 
A judge on Monday set George's bail at $100,000 and police say additional charges could be added. Panama City Beach police say George's blood alcohol content was 0.159. That's nearly twice the limit at which a driver is considered impaired in Florida.
 
Detectives are continuing to investigate the crash.
