Jul. 15, 2017
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Kansas man is accused in Missouri of being intoxicated when his vehicle crashed into another one, killing the other driver.
Jackson County prosecutors have charged 20-year-old Jason Evans of Leavenworth with felony driving while intoxicated.
Court filings allege that Evans' vehicle was traveling at a high speed late July 13 when it hit a vehicle driven by Stephen Russell in an intersection. Russell died later at a hospital, and Evans was injured.
Online court records don't show whether Evans has an attorney who can speak on his behalf.
Prosecutors have requested a $100,000 bond for Evans.
