KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - A northwestern Montana man is charged with vehicular homicide while under the influence for a June crash that killed a physician from Nebraska.

Matthew Michael Hollo of Columbia Falls was arrested on Saturday, two months after the crash that killed 68-year-old cardiologist Timothy R. Fangman of Omaha. Hollo made an initial appearance in Justice Court Monday. He did not enter a plea. He is jailed with his bail set at $100,000.

Prosecutors allege the 23-year-old Hollo was intoxicated when he drove his pickup truck head-on into Fangman’s sport utility vehicle north of Columbia Falls on June 6.

Charging documents say Hollo’s blood-alcohol level after the crash was 0.143 percent, above the legal limit of 0.08 percent.

Hollo is scheduled to be arraigned in District Court on Aug. 27.
