A 29-year-old man is accused of manslaughter, driving under the influence of alcohol and leaving the scene of the accident that killed a vacationing Oklahoma State University student here last week.

Justin Ellis Lott, 29, of Montgomery, Ala., was booked into the Baldwin County Corrections Center and released Tuesday on $140,000 bail. Gulf Shores police said Lott struck Kasey Nicole Waychoff, 19, of Flower Mound, Texas, with his vehicle about 1:45 a.m. Friday as Waychoff walked near her friends in a bike lane on the 1400 block of West Beach Boulevard.

Authorities said Lott continued to drive after Waychoff was hit. Lott was arrested by police on the same road about 15 minutes after the accident. According to an affidavit, Lott admitted to drinking alcohol but refused to take a breath test. The affidavit also stated Lott had trouble following directions, his balance was unsteady and his speech was slurred.

Stan Vinson, Baldwin County coroner, said Waychoff’s friends tried to resuscitate Waychoff while they waited for an ambulance. Waychoff was taken to South Baldwin Regional Medical Center in Foley, where she was pronounced dead at 2:26 a.m. Friday, Vinson said.
