Police in Pennsylvania say a man who cut his girlfriend's brake lines trying to get a crack pipeline faces murder charges after she lost control of the car, crashed into a tree and died.

John Jenkins, 39, of Dunmore, is detained without bail in the death on August 22 of the mother of five children Tammy Fox, 38.

One witness says that the car was traveling at a speed of 60 mph and the brake lights were blinking, but never slowed down before the crash.

Witness Richard Hein told WNEP: "We saw the car go by and she hit the two parked cars there and she hit the tree.

"My coach and I stopped and we went out and everyone was there as if they were at Cooper's house and they were trying to open the door."

According to court documents, Jenkins told police that Fox was "driving him crazy" because he was looking for a pipe to smoke crack.

He allegedly told the cops that he did not want to go to the store for a pipe, so he started "hacking" under Fox's vehicle to get something he could use.

Private Bob Urban of the Pennsylvania State Police in Dunmore confirmed that the accident was not an accident.

99 percent of the time it's mostly an operator error, but then when you investigate it and that's why we have these vehicle inspections, we determine: "Hey, this time it was not the operator" & # 39 ;, said Urban in the news. station.

& # 39; This vehicle was actually manipulated … and that was what caused the death in this clash & # 39;
