A Murfreesboro man may face charges after a weekend crash killed his girlfriend and their daughter.

Investigators said Christopher Goins, 23, was driving home after a party Saturday night with his girlfriend Amanda Odom, 21, and their 2-year-old daughter Allyssa.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol said Goins lost control around 12:35 a.m., ran off the road and crashed into a parked car.

Goins and Odom weren't wearing their seatbelts.  The little girl was in a child seat, but it wasn't properly fastened.

Goins only suffered minor injuries and has already been released from the hospital.

Investigators said alcohol and speed were factors in the crash.
