A 22-year-old Provo man was charged with automobile homicide Thursday stemming from an alcohol-fueled crash that killed a motorcyclist last week.
Tyler Ren Young was charged Thursday in 4th District Court with automobile homicide, a second-degree felony, and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, a class A misdemeanor.
The crash occurred at 1 a.m. on Sept. 14 on southbound Interstate 15 in Lindon. Young, driving a Mitsubishi Galant, allegedly rear-ended a Kawasaki motorcycle with two men on board, according to the Utah Highway Patrol. The collision spilled both bike riders onto the asphalt, where the rear passenger was subsequently run over by three vehicles.
