While Pelton was filming, neighbors came to help pull Goodin out of the vehicle. The passenger, Cameron Friend, 17, was unconscious and later died at the hospital.
The Lorain Police Department discovered that Pelton posted the video to Facebook and tried to sell it to local news stations. He was arrested Wednesday on charges of vehicle trespass.
People are encouraged to help accident victims, authorities said. "Persons are not, however, allowed to trespass into a person's vehicle criminally and without permission for the seemingly singular cause of filming, a young man's dying moments, for profit," Captain Roger Watkins wrote in a Facebook post.
Authorities say Pelton never attempted to help the victims and "was trying to make a buck off a horrifying emergency," according to The Daily Beast.
"There's a place a time to capture things on video … but this guy went into the crime scene for his own purposes," said Sgt. Buddy Sivert to The Daily Beast. "Videotaping a dying kid and posting it is not the proper thing to do."
