Criminal charges have been filed in an interstate crash in St. Paul that killed one person and caused two others to lose legs.
A criminal complaint filed in Ramsey County says 63-year-old Eugene Farrell slammed into an overturned vehicle and directly or indirectly struck Marcus Andary, Keith Barnes and the driver they were trying to help out the overturned car, Alicia Kaufenberg.
The complaint says Farrell admitted drinking before the crash.
Andary, a 21-year-old college student from Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., was thrown into the roadway and hit by another car. He died at the scene. The St. Paul Pioneer Press says Barnes and Kaufenberg suffered life-threatening injuries. Both lost their left legs.
Farrell is charged with two counts of criminal vehicular homicide and four counts of criminal vehicular operation.
