Bond was set Thursday afternoon at 10 percent of $200,000 for 23-year-old Tyler Robar, charged with motor vehicle homicide in the death last month of 20-year-old Charles Brown.
Investigators say Robar had a blood-alcohol level of .212, nearly three times the legal limit, when he crashed on Interstate 680 January 31st, killing his passenger.
Since he had a prior conviction of drunk driving in 2008, this offense is a Class II felony. If convicted, Robar would be sentenced to up to 50 years in prison.
Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine has revealed more details about the deadly accident. Kleine said investigators determined that Robar was traveling up to 92.6 mph in a 60 mph zone.
Witnesses said Robar was traveling southbound on I-680 and passed another vehicle on the shoulder. He lost control and his vehicle landed upside down on the Pacific Street off-ramp.
