Iowa man charged in fatal crash after driving roughly 70 mph
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — An 18-year-old Iowa man who was driving roughly 70 mph just before a fatal crash in a 35 mph zone last fall is now facing charges.
The Des Moines Register reports that Charles Hunter Everman was charged last month with vehicular homicide and causing serious injury in connection with the Nov. 5 crash. Everman has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Prosecutors say data from Everman’s 2012 Toyota Highlander showed he was driving between 68 mph and 72 mph shortly before the crash that killed 38-year-old Samantha Jo Kriegel in another car. Two passengers in Everman’s vehicle were also hurt.
While the court case is pending, Everman has been released on a $15,000 bond.
