Charges were filed against the driver in the fatal crash in May near Dewey that killed a Montana Tech student and seriously injured two others.

Myles A. Kittleson, 22, of Glasgow faces felony charges of vehicular homicide while under the influence and two counts of felony negligent vehicular assault, according to Beaverhead County Attorney Jed Fitch. Kittleson also faces misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence, vehicular assault, unlawful transaction with children and theft.

Kittleson is accused of being intoxicated on the afternoon of May 3 while driving east on Highway 43 between Dewey and Divide in a 2003 Grand Prix, according to charging documents. The vehicle hit a rock wall on the south side of the roadway and went airborne for about 68 feet and rolled several times.

Spencer Lewis, 21, a Montana Tech student and former football player, died at the scene of the crash. Andrea Spicher, 20 of Kalispell, and Calven Goza, 24 of Greeley, Colo., were injected in the crash and suffered serious injuries. Passenger Taylor DeBruycker, 21 of Fort Benton, who was the only person wearing a seatbelt, incurred only minor injuries in the accident.

Fitch said either a summons to appear or an arrest warrant will be issued for Kittleson. No court date for Kittleson has been set as of Tuesday.
