A 37-year-old York man has been accused of drunken driving and causing a crash that killed an Aurora teacher.
Otis Newcomb is charged with vehicular homicide and manslaughter. Authorities say the van Newcomb was driving on November 2 crossed the center line on U.S. Highway 34 about two miles west of York, striking another vehicle. Thirty-one-year-old Lauren Akerson was a passenger in the other vehicle. The second-grade teacher was fatally injured.
York County Attorney Candace Dick said Newcomb's blood alcohol level was above the legal limit and that he has a previous conviction for drunken driving.
Online records say Newcomb remained in York County Jail on Tuesday. His attorney didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press.
