WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - The man charged with being drunk when he plowed his Jeep into the rear of bread delivery truck in Massachusetts, killing the driver, faces trial in March

The Telegram & Gazette (https://bit.ly/ZTc8HR ) reports that a judge Thursday scheduled a March 23 trial for 28-year-old Keith LeBlanc of Auburn on charges including vehicular manslaughter and drunken driving.

Prosecutors say LeBlanc rear-ended the bread truck on Interstate 290 in Auburn on Nov. 11, 2012.

The truck was forced into the guardrail and the driver, 45-year-old Duane Race of Putnam, Connecticut, was thrown 80 to 100 feet and landed in the road.

Authorities say LeBlanc drove away, and police followed a trail of leaking automotive fluids to his house where he failed a field sobriety test.

His lawyer questioned the legality of that test.
