An October 10 three-car accident has left two people dead and a Wyoming man charged in the fatal wreck, according to CBS 3 in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The 27-year-old Wyoming man was officially charged with two counts of operating while impaired causing death in the 63rd District Court on October 11.
Each count carried a $25,000 cash surety bond, which totaled $50,000. The 27-year-old was released from jail after posting 10 percent of the $50,000 bond, according to NBC 8 in Grand Rapids. He was due to return to court October 23 for a preliminary exam. Prior to this incident, the Wyoming man already had six alcohol offenses and some drug crimes on his criminal record.
The accident happened shortly before 10 p.m. in Cascade Township, Michigan at the intersection of 36th Street and Patterson Avenue. A vehicle being driven by the Wyoming man was traveling northbound on Patterson Avenue when it struck a vehicle at the 36th Street intersection. That collision caused both vehicles to crash into a semi-truck.
The 50-year-old driver of the semi-truck and the 27-year-old Wyoming man were reported to have suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the accident. Both the 23-year-old male driver and the 20-year-old female passenger of the first vehicle the Wyoming man hit were killed in the wreck.
