AUGUSTA (AP) — An investigation into a fatal crash that killed a man last month has led to manslaughter charges against the driver.

Police say 21-year-old Tyler Goucher of Wayne was legally drunk when his pickup truck left the roadway and crashed in Mount Vernon.

His passenger, 19-year-old Ethan Russell of Wayne, died at the scene.

Another passenger and Goucher were seriously wounded.

Goucher, who was arrested Thursday and freed on $5,000 bail, couldn't be reached immediately for comment. It was not known if he had a defense lawyer.
