NEOLA, Iowa (AP) - A western Iowa teen is accused of intentionally swerving his truck and causing a rollover crash that killed another teen.

The Daily Nonpareil (http://bit.ly/1TAn9la ) reports 18-year-old Kael Karagianis was charged Wednesday with vehicular homicide stemming from the March 21 crash that killed 14-year old Gage Williams in Neola.

Williams and another teen were riding in the bed of the truck when officials say Karagianis intentionally swerved and hit the brake to trigger a reaction from the two boys.

Authorities say Karagianis lost control of the truck and it rolled at least once.

Williams died in a Council Bluffs hospital, while Karagianis, along with two other passengers, were injured.

Karagianis is in the Pottawattamie County Jail. His attorney didn’t immediately return a call Wednesday from The Associated Press.
