Charge filed in crash that killed CdA men

(AP) A 20-year-old man is charged with reckless driving for his alleged role in a crash near Twin Falls that killed two Coeur d'Alene High School graduates last September.

The Coeur d'Alene Press reports Twin Falls County prosecutors filed the charge against Kade D. Laughlin, of Filer, on May 5. His preliminary hearing is set for June 21.

The crash killed College of Southerin Idaho students 18-year-old Ryan Reinhardt and 19-year-old Devon Austin of Coeur d'Alene. Austin was a baseball player at CSI and had been drafted by the Chicago Cubs.

Laughlin was charged after a third person in Reinhardt's vehicle — 19-year-old Jessica Duran — reported Laughlin had been chasing their vehicle after they left a party.

Laughlin has pleaded guilty to driving under the influence that night. His attorney could not be reached for comment.
